Facial hair was a distinctly Viking feature—and one we commonly associate with Norse warriors today. According to various Norse sagas, beards were a symbol of pride and masculinity and were strong indicators of a man's character.
And despite myths that the Vikings were dirty, they were actually remarkably neat. They took care of their beards, grooming them with combs made from bone and antlers and styling them with braids and, you guessed it, Viking beard beads. It's believed that Vikings adorned their braided beards with metal beard rings to keep them tidy and us of the way as well as out of their proclivity to jewelry of all kinds.
