Helm of Awe Jewelry

The Helm of Awe is a powerful protective Viking symbol. In Norse times it was thought that the Helm of Awe was worn between the eyes to cause fear to enemies, and to protect against the abuse of power.

The Norse name for the Helm of Awe, ‘Aegishjalmur’ is derived from Aegir (Ægir in Old Norse "sea"), the god of the ocean of Jotunheim, the land of the frost giants and one of the nine realms of the ash tree, Yggdrasil.
