Northern Europe, Scandinavia / British Isles / Russia, Migration period, ca. 5th to 9th century CE. A trio of cast bronze bracelets, including one of an incredible deep turquoise patina. One of the three has a raised exterior designed to look like a braided rope. Another has a stippled pattern in the form of repeated "x"es. The third has the classic incised concentric circle pattern seen from the Roman era to the Vikings, which is often associated with warding against the evil eye. This time period is sometimes known as the Dark Ages, but it was a time of artistic innovation, intellectual growth, and distinct styles, when many of the peoples and nation-states that we associate with modern Europe were formulating from the remains of the Roman Empire. Size of largest: 2.7" W x 0.3" H (6.9 cm x 0.8 cm)
