Hand-crafted in solid Sterling Silver 925 on the beautiful Scottish Island of Orkney. This tie slide bears the Viking runes "Orkney".
A most sturdy and well built slide, and comes complete on Ortak branded packaging to best show off your new purchase.
The mysterious island of Orkney in the far north of Scotland has a history of Viking settlements, and carved runes going back from 200AD. Many of the ruins at Maeshowe, are a positive treasure trove of this ancient writing. This tie slide "Orkney" echoes this. Ps. Have you ever wondered why runes are made of straight lines ? It makes it so much easier to cut and carve straight lines into stone and wood.
This product is stamped “925” (Sterling Silver) but does not bear a full UK Hallmark as it is below mandatory hallmarking weight.
