Viking finger ring / 9th-11th century AD.

Viking finger ring / 9th-11th century AD.

This a magnificent Scandinavian Viking of finger ring, dating to the 9th - 10th century A.D. This type of finger ring is a classic of the Viking age, with an ornately knotted bezel. The knotwork is more complex than one usually finds, with the terminals drawn very thin and wrapped around the shoulders in a decorative flurry. Viking rings in gold are far scarcer then silver( ratio of at least 400/1), silver being the predominant metal used in currency, thus readily available for jewellery.

A silver finger ring, plausibly of the Anglo-Saxon period. It consists of a single strand of square-section wire that has been coiled four times to form the hoop. One free end has been twisted and wrapped around the hoop to form the shoulders and central bezel, the other plain and shorter end has been simply secured into the knot.   Rings formed from wire are difficult to date closely, unless they are recovered from a datable context. The BM Guide example referenced below, from Sarre, Kent…
