Norse jewelry


Because I’m Norwegian and absolutely love Norse mythology, I own a lot of Norse jewelry.

This is one side of a pendant I never take off. It’s molded after a real piece of Viking jewelry. This side depicts the trickster god Loki.

This is the other side, it’s hard to see in the picture, but it is the god Odinn on his eight-legged steed Sleipnir. These are other pendants depicting Norse runes. Pendants like these were often worn for protection or luck. The one of the left is for protection, the one on the right is for daylight.

This is a depiction of Thor’s hammer. It’s a fairly common emblem of protection.

This ring is another piece modeled after Viking jewelry. I also never take this off. It depicts the World Serpent of Norse mythology (one of Loki’s sons) circling the world (or my finger in this case).

  1. Where did you get your Loki pendant? I’ve been looking for a good one of a long time.
