Our solid pewter Lunular pendant ("little moon") is a copy of an original from the Viking period that was found in Novgorod, Russia. This style of pendant is a common find in Russia and the Slavic regions, but is lesser found in the West.

Gilding, or gold plating, was carried out on many jewellery items in the Viking age, using the mercury gilding process. This piece has a 1micron thick layer of gold, plated over pewter, to give an attractive representation of what some of these Viking age pieces may have looked like when they were first made.

It is cast in lead free pewter in Scotland, then gold plated, and comes with a length of black leather cord.
