The norse mythology has ended around the millennium ago. However, they are still capturing our attention to viking jewellry today. As a result – from many cartoons up to fancy dress outfits.

Vikings were well-known, influential and fearless warriors who did not look like any other tribe. Vikings were real fighters, brave and active people, who had their customs and traditions. One of the main Vikings heritages was their jewelry and how they used it.

Viking bracelets and viking rings not only served to “improve” their appearance but was also a demonstration of their family wealth and status in society. As a rule, Nordic jewelry was of simple shapes and designs. It corresponded to a specific weight system so that it was easy to determine the cost of silver. Sometimes Vikings cut their jewelry in half or into unequal parts to pay for a service or item. At that time, jewelry was the most frequently made of silver. However, there were the other materials (wood, glass, amber gold, animals’ bones, etc.) used to create different accessories (the choice of material depends on the wearer and the purpose). The most popular viking artifacts
were different viking arm rings, necklaces, pins,and bracelets. Various pendants were also very common Viking artifacts. The main Viking jewelries were pagan and Christian amulets. Thor’s Hammer was the most  popular Viking symbol.
