Ancient Scandinavian Viking Braided Silver Finger Ring
This is an ancient Scandinavian Viking silver finger ring, dating to the 10th - 12th century A.D. The ring is formed from rods of silver twisted together, each then braided to form the knotted bezel, the terminals hammered and welded (to enable the ring to be adjustable). An interesting and wearable ancient ring in good excavated condition, the silver is good and can be cleaned if desired.
