Roman iron age (001-400 AD).
The bracelet is made from a wire and the ends of it are stylized animal heads. Found in gold in Jutland. The thin gold tread was wound around the finger, the wrist, pierced the ear or wound around the ankle and pieces were broken off and given in exchange of other goods. The gold was worn by rich men and thus a fashion developed which could be copied in silver and bronze. Gradually the rings were ornamented with distinctive motives, especially snake heads.
