Vegvisir Rune Viking Shield Ring – Sterling Silver. This Sterling Silver Viking Ring is from our Premium Old Gods Jewelry Line.
A vegvísir (Icelandic for sign post or wayfinder) is an Icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. The symbol is attested in the Huld Manuscript, collected in Iceland by Geir Vigfusson in 1880 (but consisting of material of earlier origin).
Vegvísir is derived from two Icelandic words, vegur and vísir. Vegur means way, road, or path, and vísir means path or guide. Vegur is derived from the Old Norse vegr, Proto-Germanic *wegaz, or the Proto-Indo-European *weǵʰ-. Vísir is derived from the Old Norse vísa meaning to show, point out or indicate, or the Proto-Germanic wīsōną or wisaz, meaning to visit.
The band of this ring also features oak leaves and acorns — in Norse mythology, symbols of good fortune, protection, and Thor.
