    Question Re: Germanic Jewelry and Items

    Do you know if those items that appear to be earrings were meant for some type of piercing or were they hung from their clothing?

    Germanic Jewelry and Grave Goods

    Detailed Germanic Workmanship in Gold, ca.600:
    Geometric Design of a Buckle



    There is a certain beauty to Germanic Jewelry, but also a primitive simplicity -- traits that contributed to both the destruction of Roman political order and to the creation of the Medieval World.
    The fierceness of Germanic invaders can be seen in this carving of the prow of a Germanic raiding boat. Their weapons (more) tell a silent but deadly story, while their jewelry -- brooches, buckles and rings show that these people were coming with some gounding in creativity, art, aesthetics as well as wealth. The Find at Sutton Hoo turned up many more such artifacts.

    Does anyone happen to have more pictures?

    Thank you for the interesting examples. During my search for more pictures, I found this webpage with objects that relate to or are influenced by Anglo-Saxon Heathenism.

    Some more examples:

    This brooch was made in Scandinavia in the 7th century AD and depicts an intertwined snake, snakes were often used in Germanic art because they had a symbolical meaning, in almost every ancient culture snakes played an important role in mythology, the most famous snake in Germanic mythology was Jormungandr; one of the three evil demons who were the children of Loki and Angrboda, Jormungandr (also known as the Midgard serpent) lived in the sea where he sank ships and killed sailors.




    Franconian brooch made during the Merovingian dynasty in the early Middle Ages, the holes may have once contained gems.




    Silver belt buckle inlayed with enamel found in northern Italy, it was left there by the Ostrogoths.
    The eagle was the symbol of the Goths who probably copied it from Asian peoples after invading the Ukraine and the Crimea.




    The Iron Crown worn by the Langobardian kings, the crown was created around an iron band that was believed to be made of the nails of the cross of Jesus Christ.




    Golden crown of the Langobardian queen Teodelinda.




    Scandinavian necklace made of glass and rock crystal from the 10th century AD, the beads were created and decorated individually.
