This premium Viking armring based on a find from Bryungs, Gotland is for true connoisseurs of Viking Age art, who appreciate historical authenticity and the tremendous work that goes into crafting a massive piece like this.

The thick, prominent piece has been wholly handmade according to ancient Viking silversmithing techniques with scrupulous attention to details. With so many different components, it is a very complicated process that takes a week's worth of work and absolute top level craftsmanship to finalize. Several thick wires are forged tightly together with thinner filigree wires to create a tightly woven piece that ends in dragon heads from Gotland. As the number of wires used increase, so does the difficulty level and there isn’t room for a single mistake during the silversmithing process. Few have the skill to craft them, which makes complicated armrings like this quite rare.

Black velvet bag included.
