There were many highly talented gold and silver smiths among the Nordic settlers who came to Iceland some 1100 years ago. Women in those days dressed expensively for special occasions and adorned themselves with jewelry made out of gold, silver or brass. The goldsmith's art and skills have been preserved in Iceland through the age's. Jewelry and crafts have been discovered at various archaeological sites all over the country. The National Museum of Iceland displays many of these artifacts, dating from the time of Iceland's settlement up to the middle ages.

The jewelry are made from sterling silver. Several different pieces of replica jewelry are available. These pieces are true masterpieces.
