Jewelry: Viking Man's Wedding RingDate: 850-1050 ADMaterial: CopperSize: 10 3/4
Broad rounded section band. Made of copper, which is virtually unheard of in other cultures where it was invariably alloyed with tin or zinc to make bronze or brass. The use of unalloyed copper is specific to Vikings who were highly skilled metallurgists. Vikings exchanged rings on the pommel of the groom's sword. Untouched as found with good dark patina.
