Viking amulets of power, protection and good luck: meanings and values
Norse jewelry is one of the most wanted unique jewelry types. Handmade nordic jewelry is of special meaning and value for genuine connoisseurs of Viking culture. However the items of ancient Vikings will be of great interest and value not only for historians and archaeologists, but to all people who want to get protection from evil eye and forces, to attract luck and to get healed. Ancient people believed that nature powers and supreme forces were of great help for them in severe struggles with enemies and natural disasters. Though in the modern age we do not face vital hazards every day, we do know how to effectively heal our body (thanks to modern medicine) and sous (thanks to psycho-therapists), still we need to know that something else can protect our bodies and souls from evil matters, which unfortunately are not researched by modern science. To know which nordic symbols or norse runes will be the best protection and safeguarding for you, we need to make a retrospective journey into the history and culture of Vikings — the people who passed us the sacred knowledge of nature powers through symbols and signs realized in various amulets. Our store offers a vast choice of pendants, necklaces, bracelets which are exact replicas of ancient archaeological findings.
Vikings history and culture
Vikings are ancient Scandinavian people living on the territory of modern Sweden, Norway and Denmark in the 8th-11th centuries. They traded and raided vastly across the European continent. The history of these warrior people is closely related to the sea. These people are known for their coastal attacks, long sea trips to investigate far lands and trade. Vikings had polytheistic religion, that means that these ancient warriors believed in more than one god. The prime god was Odin, the Vikings also worshiped his son Thor. When a person died the Vikings believed his or her soul coming to one of the destinations: Valhalla for brave warriors who died in battles and Hel for all others. This proves that Vikings were a rather martial nation.
Viings were mostly non-literate people. They did not leave much of literary legacy. As alphabet they used runic symbols which were far more than letters of our alphabet. Norse symbols had more than one meaning commonly presenting an esoteric meaning which were often used in divinations.
The modern knoweldge of Viking history, culture, customs and norse mythology symbols came from other cultures which were in close relations with Vikings. The runic alphabet consisted of 24 symbols most of which feature religious and ritual meanings.
