Helm of Awe Pendant on Wax Cord

viking jewelry

In recent years "Aegishjalmr", the Helm of Awe, has become an iconic symbol tied into the magic of runes. However, the earliest depiction of this symbol was in the 17th Century Icelandic grimoire, Galdrabok.

The term "Aegishjalmr" is mentioned in the Volsung Saga, but with no description or explanation of what it is. Today it is believed to protect the wearer from harm.

This beautiful pendant features the Helm of Awe on a slate-like background and is available in a choice of bright silver or pewter finish. Supplied with an adjustable length wax cord.

Please note, this is made from alloy. If you would like a real pewter pendant please see our Elite Series collection
