if you are looking for a stylish bracelet not only aesthetically but also with meaning, the rune bracelet might be just right for you. The Vikings left a large number of documents in stone, wood, and metal, all written in the enigmatic rune symbols.
They used these symbols not only for writing but also for fortune-telling, spell casting, and protection. What better way to embrace the Viking spirit with a rune bracelet?
Each rune represents a specific meaning, so you can choose the one that best suits yourself or the person you want to gift to
Mjölnir also called Thor’s hammer is a fearsome weapon in Norse mythology that can destroy entire mountains with a single blow, can shoot lightning and returns to his hand when thrown.
It is the most potent weapon in Norse mythology for this very reason Thor’s hammer was worn by the Vikings as an amulet, charm, and other pieces of jewelry like bracelets. Many Viking-era necklaces and bracelets with this symbol have been discovered by archeologists.
Thor’s hammer was thought to be useful in battle for protection against the enemy, as well as having magical properties and the ability to bless or consecrate.
In this list of Viking bracelets, we could not miss this now iconic Viking symbol. For the common Viking warrior who could not afford to carry a sword into battle, axes were the weapon of choice.
Combat axes were light enough to swing with one hand while still delivering a mortal wound. For these reasons, they become very popular and associated with them.
Thor’s Hammer Stainless Steel bracelet
If you are not a fan of leather then a metal bracelet is the way to go. Stainless steel would be our first choice because is a very robust material it does not fade and it can be worn while showering, which we do not recommend for leather bracelets.
In this example the stainless steel chain is paired with a small Mjolnir, making it a more subtle version than other choices and very comfortable on the wrist
A Viking bracelet is an accessory that provides power and protection to its wearer. So why not choose a powerful Viking Symbol? In this case, the Vegvisir symbol would be our 1st choice. It is a well-known and powerful symbol of protection.
It was discovered in an ancient manuscript, with the following description: “If someone carries this symbol with him, he will never lose his way in a storm or in bad weather, even if he travels along a road unknown to him.” See also our article Viking Symbols and their meaning
Looking good at this point in the season is simple. But just because your style has been reduced to a few of your favorite items doesn’t mean you should stop trying.
