An eastern Baltic viking ring (2)

A silver (with bronze ?) ring

Another one of the very first items I aquired on Ebay years ago. A silver / bronze ring from the northwestern part of today Russia.

 

A nice ring with blue glass stone setting (as also can be seen used in the type of penannular brooch used in this area)

 

 

I've actually worn it for one day, but then a tiny piece of the - fragile - blue glass inlay broke of. Now, of course, it lays at rest between his other brothers and sisters in the vitrine ;>)
