Viking jewelry are often pieces of masterful artistry, depicting abstract and geometric patterns, as well as images of nature, animals and mythology. The most vikings jewelry material was silver, but there was a wide variation all depending on the wearer and the purpose. Many Viking pendants were either connected to faith, or amulets with magical powers. This section contains both accurate reproductions of authentic Viking jewelry, as well as contemporary pieces that have undergone an artistic development.
In Sweden, as well as Norway, a troll cross is a cross cut or carved on an object, or above a door or window, to prevent trolls or evil spirits from entering and harming people or property. It can also be a piece of iron worn as an amulet to ward off malevolent magic.
Vikings used necklaces with animals or beasts biting onto a ring where pendants were hung. This variant consists of a King Chain ending in the heads of Geri and Freki, the wolves of Odin, that bite onto a ring with a large Mjölnir pendant with the one-eyed mask of Odin and the Aegishjalmur symbol. As the name implies, this is the king of all chains and it was seen as a sign of success and power among the Vikings. Our King Chain is 100% handmade from Stainless Steel, which results in a piece of fantastic jewelry that will never rust. The process of crafting it by hand is very time-consuming, since each small link is added one by one to the chain. The chain comes with a lobster clasp that keeps this massive piece secured around your neck, as well as a pendant ring that can be opened and closed easily. The Valknut (warrior’s knot) is an ancient symbol that appears on runestones as early on as the 8th century. It is associated with the god Odin and symbolizes his power to lay bonds upon the mind, turning men helpless in battle, or making them fearless and filled with battle-madness, intoxication and inspiration.
