This is an ancient Scandinavian Viking silver finger ring, dating to the 9th - 10th century A. It has been made from a hammered rod of silver, formed in an elongated pointed-oval shape, and stamped with a design. The bezel is the widest part, tapering through the shoulders to the points left open to enable the ring to be sized up or down. Stamped finger-rings with knotted ends, in gold, silver and copper alloy, are characteristic of the Scandinavian world in the late 9th and 10th centuries TAR 2002, no. 45; Rogerson and Dallas (1984), 68, fig.
