What does this jewelry represent ?
Odin was both the most important of the Norse gods, and one of the most complex.
He was the king of Asgard, and from his throne there he could look out over the nine worlds of the Norse cosmos and see all existence.
He was a god of war, the past time that both protected and enriched the Vikings, and the god of knowledge, a quality that allowed the Vikings, both collecting and individually, to thrive.
Odin gave the knowledge of the runes to mankind, and was also associated with magic and sorcery.
While Thor may have been styled as the protector of mankind with his mighty hammer, it was Odin who protected warriors in battle, and nourished Viking civilisation through the acquisition of knowledge.
Thus, while Thor was the Norse hammer, Odin was the Viking shield.
This sterling silver ring features an intricate shield design with runic details.
It can be associated with the legendary shield Svalinn, which, according to the Grimnismal, protected the earth from the fiery power of the sun. Get this symbol of Viking protection for yourself.
