History On Viking Knit, And Viking Necklaces:

Approximately 1,300 years ago the Nordic Vikings started to use pieces of gold and silver thin wire to weave ropes. These wire ropes were then stretched and made into jewelry for higher Archy and powerful Viking leaders of that time. This wire weaving is called viking knit or trichinopoly chain. There are several weave variations also. These ropes were not suitable for armor as it really was not flexible enough (probably the original intention).

Chain mall became the choice for that. These Viking woven ropes were perfect for jewelry and strong as well. There were often finals (chain ends) added to make the chains even more special. Most of the finals or terminals depicted animals or mythological creatures. Some were intricate geometric designs on the caps.

There also had to be a clasp for closing the chain and they were very smart in creating a hook that was both a clasp and pendant holder for the Nordic Viking necklaces. Even today in our modern world this clasp is still being used. It resembles the letter “M” with the outsides clasping the chain. The Nordic pendant or amulet was hung from the middle bottom. For necklace clasp without pendant only a simple “S” shape works very well. Each end of the chain is held on the clasp loops. Before the invent of the chain Nordic people or Vikings used beads and string of some form to make necklaces.
