Viking Tortoise Brooch or Pin - Borre Art Style

Traditionally, a Viking Tortoise Brooch was worn in pairs and pinned to the front of a dress or apron. They were worn by married women with beaded necklaces connecting the two brooches. This intricately detailed brooch is considered an example of the Viking Borre art style in that it uses strong lines and abstracted geometric shapes in its design. But don't think that this item is just for women. Men would also sometimes wear brooches like this for functionality, but also to use them as payment for various goods or services. While brooches like this were typically worn as a pair, we are selling these individually in case you'd rather just have one to use with a scarf, or to use as a solitary fashion statement on a shirt or jacket. It's simply perfect for any Scandinavian attire or fashion style, be it historic or contemporary.
