Valknut Norse Viking Amulet Pendant Necklace in 925 Silver
This Norse symbol comprising of three interlocked triangles, the Valknut, is one of the most intriguing symbols connected with ancient Norse mythology. The symbol has been found on a number of memorial stones and rune stones from the Viking Age. It also appears on a number of Germanic objects, such as cremation urns of the Anglo Saxons. However, the term Valknut is used to describe the symbol, as a modern Norwegian invention, evolving from the combination of Old Norse words, ‘Valr’ meaning slain warrior, and ‘knut’ meaning knot. The symbol is associated with the god Odin, the Norsemen's god of war and death, and ruler of all Norse gods.
Each double-faced amulet is crafted in 925 sterling silver plated over a premium lead and nickel free base metal and measures 36 x 36mm. Each Valknut piece hangs on a 20" silver chain fitted with a lobster claw clasp.
