Four heart-shaped gilded silver pendants with niello details. The pendants were attached to four of the shield-shaped belt mounts. They are not identical but all have the same motif with eastern, post-Sasanian floral decoration. They may have been manufactured somewhere in the Islamic caliphate. Part of a hoard find, Vårby, Huddinge Parish, Södermanland.
