A belt with a large buckle indicated that the wearer was of high status. Belts were also used to hold a knight's sword and other weapons, and both men and women wore them.

Viking belt design was not gender-specific. Women and children wished to have belts that were just as ornate as the men's. However, men were the only ones who could wear a belt with a large buckle. This was because only men were allowed to carry weapons.

Women did not agree with this, and they found ways around it. They would wear a belt with small knives hidden in them. This way, they could defend themselves if they needed to.

As armor developed further after the Viking age, plate armor did not need a belt to hold it up. However, wearing this kind of belt is a way to show that you are proud of your Viking heritage.

Please Note: Many of our pieces are made to order and in some cases it may be 3-4 weeks before you receive it.
