Viking Norse Arm Ring, Cuff, Bracelet, Elegant Hammered Armring in Bronze or Copper
Elegantly simply hammered armring cuff in 6mm diameter copper or bronze. Armrings were often presented by Viking leaders as a symbol of allegiance and thanks to their warriors. The giving of such gifts was a demonstration of the wealth and generosity of the cheiftan, and the person who accepted the gift promised his faithful service by accepting it. Thus the armring became a physical reminder of the solemn oath. Note: this is an abstract hammered textured finish. It does not have etched symbols or runic inscriptions like some of our other arm-rings. S/m to fit wrist 15-18cm. L/XL to fit wrist 18-21cm Each is unique. No two are the same. The photographs above are an example only. As all items are made to order we will send a photograph of your item on request before despatch. This item comes with velvet gift bag, an owner's certificate leaflet. Cleansed and blessed for strength, health, and protection from the Old Norse Gods and the Viking Ancestors, by the North Sea at Tynemouth, Northumberland, England at the site of the invasion of Northumbria in 875 AD by Halfdene, first King of the Kingdom of Jorvik (York). Copper and its alloys; bronze and brass, are natural materials with proven anti-microbial properties and although we can make no claims, some say anti-inflammatory effects useful for joint pain. Unless otherwise stated your piece will come coated in a tough invisible transparent lacquer to protect the finish however over time and depending on how its treated this coating may break down. As such, depending on your body chemistry and atmospheric conditions this piece may leave a harmless greenish deposit on the skin. This is easily washed off and can be minimized by keeping it clean and dry or lacquering/waxing it yourself. Non-European customers.
