This pretty pewter pendant symbolises a Viking period Key. It would have been worn by women 1000 years ago to show that they were in charge of the household and the land. It meant that they were in control of all locked items - like the house and the chests of jewellery and money. It was the women and not their husbands who were in control of such things.
This pendant may be worn around the neck, or you could also remove the cord and affix to a string of beads between a pair of oval brooches.
We use a specialist in England for gold plating. They plate directly onto one of our pewter pieces, and the plating is 1 micron thick.
It is supplied with a length of black leather thong and packaged in a gift box.
All our jewellery comes with a short description on the reverse.
