Broad form with nubbed rounded edges. Central finely defined heart with the top members forming a trefoil (triple leaf) motif within. Variant foliage motifs were very popular with Vikings. Over 3/4” width, cast in an open-faced mold as can be seen from the back. That method is characteristic for the period, 1000 years ago. For Vikings, the heart stood for bravery, fortitude, loyalty, integrity, all attributes of the warrior. It is said that Hrungnir, with whom Thor dueled (assisted by a sorceress), had a heart of stone. Professionally refurbished with silver overlay restored on a sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed for Valentine’s Day giving with a certificate of authenticity.
