Magnificent Viking tortoise brooches worthy a queen. Handmade just like the original 10th Century brooches they are double shelled, rather than just a one piece cast. The luxurious brooches come with a bronze base and an open work top. Silver filigree wires in two different sizes and five silver rivets contrast the bronze base beautifully. The brooches are topped off with four sweet water pearls each.
Tortoise brooches (dress brooches) are worn in pairs on the front of a Viking woman's dress. It was customary to suspend a string of beads and charms between them.The brooches are sold in pairs.
