It was the Vikings' excellence in seafaring technology that enabled them to become such widespread traders and explorers.
This handsome necklace celebrates their legendary and powerful longship, which the Vikings used for their voyages of exploring, trading and warfare.
It features the large square sail and the symmetrical bow and stern, which enabled the vessel to reverse direction quickly.
The long low horizontal hull of the ship was lightweight and built for speed; it could also be carried overland and used for shelter when its crew was camped.
During the voyage, the hull was lined with the distinctive Viking shields that were like armor to protect its crew.
This pendant also features ocean waves rendered in a decoratively dramatic style consistent with the Viking aesthetic.
