Urnes Viking earrings by Peter Stone Jewllery, in 925 Sterling Silver. For the Shield Maidens among us.
Named after the spectacular carvings of the stave church at Urnes in Norway, this style evolved at the end of the Viking age, and continued to be popular into the 12th century, when the Viking age had already ended and most of the Nordics had converted to the Christian faith. The Urnes style is characterised by very elongated and elegantly shaped animals that swirl and sway in long, with almond shaped eyes and long faces that are seen in profile. The Urnes style has been defined into three sub-styles, Early-, Mid- and Late-Urnes styles. The Urnes style was active between around 1050 to 1150 A.D., when it was succeeded by the Urnes-Romanesque style, and later other medieval art styles.
