    DG, I wonder if the 2 people are Adam & Eve? I've seen the symbol before, but can't recall it's meaning right now. It does look like silver intaglio. With the location of the top of the piece, I think it was some type of bracelet or buckle with perhaps a leather strap band. Can you post a closer pic of the back? Super neat find Breezie

    Judging by the back, I don't think its silver. It might be plated. Since you can see it in person, and we can't, are there any symbols or pictures on the back, or just words? Breezie

    I think I found the symbol or at least the cousin. It's called a Witch's Knot.

    Witch’s Knot – this is the most common symbol in folk magick. In the middle ages, witches used this as a charm to protect themselves against other witches who used their magic to harm others.

    My next thought: Could it be a faux coin placed into a bezel?

    I like Breezie's Adam & Eve idea ... which leads me to suspect the symbolism in the center is related to the "Forbidden Fruit Tree" and/or the "Serpent."

    I'm finding lots of Adam & Eve imagery like the one below. But I haven't found a symbol yet that looks exactly like the swirly design at the top of the item in question. I'm thinking that swirly design might represent the serpent entwined around the tree of knowledge.

    It's a Saint John's cross:

    Not much is known of the original Nordic meaning of the symbol (before christian meaning). Also referred to as a Saint Hans cross.
