HISTORY ON BRACELETS AND GELT:
Ritual gifting was the basis of Viking society. Arm torcs, Viking bracelets, necklaces and rings were given out by lords as marks of favor when the treasure hoard was divided up in the village. The old nordic tradition is so popular that the words “ring-giver” are on the same level as the word “king”. Arm bands were popular because they allowed one to show off wealth. Wearing them on the arm surely kept them safe too.
The bands were normally made of pure metals (Sterling Silver or Gold). Usually, a band would be made by twinning a golden wire around an iron rod, which was typical of Viking jewelry making. There are many examples of Norse bracelets & torcs in museums. Gift rings also play a big role in Norse literature, like “Beowulf,” which deals heavily with the giving of gelt as well as the politics of olden days as a focus.
