Product number: 3128
Carefully handmade bead in pure, genuine 18 karat gold that makes for a fantastic addition, or centerpiece to any of your Viking jewelry or bead strings. Vikings used many different beads, especially in silver, and gold would have been a true mark of stature.
There are several advantages with 18K gold, which is the preferred choice for high end gold jewelry. The color of 18K gold is much closer to that of pure gold (that is too soft to be used in jewelry), while the yellow in 10K or 14K may not be as intense. Being purer than 10K and 14K gold, the bead is also less likely to cause an allergic reaction in people sensitive to nickel.

Silver was far more common in the Viking Age, whilst gold was reserved for the rich and powerful.
