This stamped cuff bracelet is based on one made of silver that was found in a hoard of Viking treasure in Galloway, Scotland in 2014. The hoard has been dated to around 900 AD. Bracelets such as this had a dual purpose as personal decoration, and a convenient way of carrying wealth, as silver was used as currency in everyday transactions in the Viking age. Pewter Weight 42g Internal Length/Gap 16cm/3.5cm Silver Weight 33g Internal Length/Gap 17cm/3.1cm This bracelet should be carefully sized to fit so that it can be taken on and off. Over bending should be avoided as this may cause metal fatigue. It is available in both 925 Sterling silver, and lead free pewter. The silver version is hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office. To maintain shine, polish with a soft, dry cloth.
