A Viking Ring And Jewelry History:
Nordic Vikings surely must have loved jewelry judging from the archaeological dig evidence found in many sights. As ceremonial offerings viking rings for the finger were sometimes exchanged and an oath might be taken on an arm ring in a local temple or at a temporary altar. Usually when Viking men swore elegance to an earl or lord. They most likely exchanged jewelry during marriage ceremonies much as we do to this day. Vikings wore many types of jewelry, requisite brooches along with the arm and viking finger rings, neck rings, and yes even toe rings. These Nordic or Norse rings were made from silver, gold and sometimes jet or other materials.
Viking necklaces often were made of silver, domestic glass, bronze, and amber beads. Some were made with imported semi-precious stones such as crystal, carnelian or obsidian. The Norse Vikings traveled to many places. This afforded plenty of opportunity to acquire precious metals, jewelry objects, and materials for making them. That is why Sterling Silver Pendants were also very popular as we all know about mjollnirs (Thor’s Hammer Pendants). Nordic Vikings were quite capable of making jewelry. Great craftsman in there day for sure. We hope our clientele will enjoy the historical information we try to gather about all our Viking Jewelry.
