Vikings Slavic Wheel Sigil Ring. This Premium Stainless Steel Ring is from our Handcrafted Viking Forge Line.
Odin is well-known as the Norse god of war, but he was also the Norse god of wisdom. In fact, he was obsessed with knowledge, and would do almost anything to get it, including plucking out his own eye, and hanging himself from the tree of life for nine days and nine nights, while pierced by his own spear.
This Viking symbol of three interlocking horns refers to another one of Odin’s quests for knowledge. He tricked a giantess into thinking that he loved her in order to drink the Mead of Poetry, which would give him ultimate power over the spoken word. The mead was held in three giant drinking horns, and Odin eventually drank all three. If you have a passion for knowledge, especially in the form of the written word, then this is the ideal symbol for you. It is delivered in an authentic Mammen design, a form of Viking art that was popular in Denmark in the last 10th century. The result is a genuine piece of Viking craftsmanship.

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.

Carry the power of Thor with Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, on a cord necklace featuring raven’s head clasps! Mjolnir (also Mjöllnir) was both thunder-god Thor’s preferred weapon and the means by which he granted blessings. As a symbol, it was widely in use during the viking era, and versions of it were often worn or carried as talismans by the vikings, who certainly would have wanted to call upon Thor’s strength, protection, and skill in battle.
This leather Hammer of Thor Raven King’s Chain features a heavy necklace and Thor’s Hammer pendant. Mjolnir is adorned with bold knotwork. The necklace is a high quality and modernized reconstruction of chain and mjolnir of the findings from Ödeshög, Östergötland, Sweden
