Viking jewelry often depicted images of nature, animals, and mythology as well as abstract and geometric patterns. The bronze ring Aini is a beautiful example of masterful Viking artistry.

It is intricately hand decorated with period ornaments symbolizing stability, identity, and inner strength. It is made to serve its owner and help them to fulfill their potential and guide them on their way - the exact same way Viking jewelry and Nordic jewelry were originally made.

 

Processing

Aini is handmade out of premium quality bronze in our forge according to authentic medieval methods. It is an accurate replica of Viking jewelry discovered in Sweden which pays respect to the Vikings tradition and focuses on maintaining the historical and symbolic knowledge which we have learned about them.

 

History

The beautiful Aini ring is inspired by historical findings found in the so called Spillings Hoard in Gotland, the Swedish island, which was densely populated during the Viking age. We are able to admire several archeological findings of typical Viking jewelry, the rare finds of finger rings lead us to believe that this type of jewelry was not so common among all Vikings. The rings were popular with individuals, both men and women, and they were worn as a symbol of status and wealth. Bronze was also considered a precious metal alongside silver and gold and was often used for Viking jewelry.
