What does this jewelry represent ?
To the Vikings, runes were more than just a script.
They represented wisdom, fate, and the power to control the world. Runes did not just represent ideas, but could make ideas real through writing.
Odin hung himself from Yggdrasil, the tree of life, for nine days and nine nights while pierced by his own spear in order to gain knowledge of the runes, which he then shared with mankind.
Men could use the runes as a script, but also as a form of magic, inscribing them on weapons to make them more powerful, or placing them near the ill to help cure their ailments.
The runes also played an important role in shaping fate.
The Norns, the Norse fates, carved runes into the bark of Yggdrasil in order to write the fate of men, and practitioners of Seidr magic could read and sometimes change the course of fate, using the runes.
Thus, the runes were a potent Viking symbol, representing wisdom, fate, but also control, and the potential ability to shape the future. This ring is ideal for the modern Viking who plans to shape their own future.
