By way of background, the Viking civilization flourished during 700 AD to 1,000 AD throughout northern Europe. Artists and craftsmen, working in gold, copper, silver and bronze, evolved a distinctive design style in which strands are plaited and interlaced with animal-like creatures. The Vikings concealed hoards of ornaments and silver believing that what was buried would be enjoyed in the afterlife. Through archaeological finds of treasure-trove, we can experience the wonders of the Viking age, which we have re-created here in this unique range of pendants. Each pendant comes with a chain and a booklet which explains the significance of all the pieces in the collection.
