About the Viking Rings
It is in this collection that you will find all our Viking rings. We have the best collection of Norse rings in the world. All are handmade out of the finest materials including gold, sterling silver, bronze, and stainless steel.
Many of the pieces in this collection are inspired by genuine pieces surviving from the Viking age. We know that the Vikings wore finger rings, probably as status symbols. Signet rings were common, and the symbol on the ring probably represented something meaningful to the wearer. This could be a divine patron, heroic ancestor, or one of his own deeds (what would Ragnarok “hairy pants” Lothbrok have worn?).
Here you will find rings perfect to be your signet, a Viking fashion piece, or a gift for someone special.
