Northern Europe, Viking / Norse culture, ca. 800 to 1100 CE. A stunning braided bracelet created with only a single elongated strand of silver. Flattened terminals grace either end of the band, and the mercurial coloration of the silver exudes a graceful old-world charm. While similar examples only display silvery tones inherent with the substantive material, these braids exhibit an almost rainbow tone near areas where the strands meet, in hues of violet, ruby, citrine, and amber. Miniscule areas of green and blue-green patina only aid in increasing the appeal of this wearable work of Viking artistry! Size: 2.875" Diameter (7.3 cm); size of opening: 0.875" W (2.2 cm); total weight: 45.6 grams.
