Connect with your ancient roots wearing this pair of wonderful Alexander Ritchie designed Viking longship silver earrings that were made on the tiny island of Iona in Scotland.
These lovely vintage earrings have full Edinburgh hallmarks and they are in beautiful condition. The little ships dangle enticingly from silver ear hooks and we particularly like this design because the ships have furled (folded) sails rather than the full sails usually seen.
The Viking Longship was one of Ritchie's favourite designs and he based them on the ancient Norse burial slabs found on the Isle of Iona.

SIZE: 1-1/2" (4cm) top to bottom, the ships measure approx. 2x1.5cm
