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.
  • Size: 3"x 2.30" (7.6 x 5.9 cm)

  • Weight per brooch: 68 g
Norse women wore pairs of oval brooches to fasten the shoulder straps of a tunic worn over other garments. Beads of amber, wood or glass may have hung between these brooches or a chain with useful items such as a comb or keys. Nearly all finds of dress brooches are crafted from bronze.
