Arm-ring

Cultures/periods:
Vikings

Date of production:

10thC

Twisted

Materials:
Gold


An arm ring formed from a pair of twisted round gold rods, with a pair of twisted wires between them (of which a short length is missing at one end), the rods taper slightly to plain straight ends. The ring is worn, with some surface damage, so the number of nicks is not known exactly.

This bracelet weave was very common from the 10th to 12th centuries.
