This is a rather charming Scandinavian Viking silver finger ring, dating to the 10th - 12th century AD. The ring is formed from five strands of wire, two twisted and three pain. Each laid to form a pattern and the ends were welded to form an open back for adjustment. It is an original example in good excavated condition, as such is still wearable but with care!
