Viking jewelry in Aug. 1 auction comes ready to wear

Rings, amulets and pendants dating back to the 8th through the 15th centuries – many of them made and worn by Vikings – will be sold in a Jasper52 auction on Wednesday, Aug. 1. The symbolic meaning in their shapes often embodies the great strength of Viking warriors who bore them. Also offered will be jewelry items worn by ancient Romans as well as early Christians.

Early Christian pilgrim’s ring, 7th-10th century, size 9, professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Estimate: $250-$300. Jasper 52 image
