A slightly slimmer replica of the original found in Burge, Gotland, Sweden, c.950-1050.
Viking arm rings signified a Viking warrior's right of passage and a symbol of manhood. They were worn either just above the elbow or just above the bicep and a Viking warrior's experience was signified by the amount of arm rings that he, or she wore. Many of our Viking armrings are direct replicas of orignal Viking finds and others use designs from genuine Viking artefacts.
