What does this jewelry represent ?
Like most peoples, the Vikings believed in life after death.
But where you ended up depended on how you lived your life. Viking warriors that died bravely on the battlefield were taken by the Valkyries to Valhalla.
This was the hall of Odin, the Norse god of war.
The warriors would feast and fight there until they were called upon to fight again in the final battle at the end of days.
Vikings that did not die in battle might be taken by Hrungnir down to Hel, a cold and lifeless place ruled over by the goddess Hel, one of the children of Loki.
The Valknut was the Viking symbol associated with the afterlife, and appears on many tombs and grave goods.
It seems to have been a symbol of Valhalla.
It might be that the Vikings inscribed the symbol on the belongings of the dead to indicate that they were now in Valhalla.
It is also possible that they used the symbol to ward off Hrungnir, and encourage Odin and his Valkyrie servants to come for their loved ones.
Either way, the Valknut has become inextricably connected with the idea of the death of the Viking warrior, and living every moment with courage and without fear.
Fate is written, you have nothing to fear but fear itself. Invoke this Viking mentality with this finely designed sterling silver Valknut ring.
