Silvered bronze. Just over 1” height, formed as a stylized heart, combining the favorite Viking symbol with the circle to preserve strength.  When fastened to the jerkin, these small metal brooches provided a measure of protection against sword cuts and, in fact, were a form of armor. See current Public Television programming for documentation of these in action. As protectors, they also held spiritual significance for the warrior. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored and suspended from a 18” Sterling silver neck chain. Jewelry gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
