The Wolf rings represent one of the major Viking symbols. This Scandinavian jewel par excellence marks the Viking identity of the wearer. Nordic women and men were reluctant to part with them, even taking them to their graves, accompanying them on their journey to the afterlife.
This mystical side of wolf rings has long puzzled historians, only recently being answered by a discovery that stands out from the crowd.
During the fall of 2015, a Viking ring was discovered in Goa, an ancestral region of the Viking civilization, located in the western region of Norway. This Viking ring, made of two wolf heads in a spiral shape, dates back to the height of the Viking Age; between the year 900 and 1000 AD.
This historical discovery is unparalleled, as it demonstrates the intimacy of the Viking culture's connection to the wolf symbol. Alas, the question of what the ring symbolizes remains:
Whether it is one or the other, wolf rings are a symbol of loyalty and wealth. The legend of Odin's ring "Draupnir" supports this. This magical gold ring multiplies every 9 days, giving 8 other similar copies. Its owner is destined to a life of lust and wealth.
Wolf bracelets are both a symbol of virility, considered the greatest trophy of a Scandinavian warrior, but also an emblem of femininity adorning Viking women. This double symbolism, which may seem paradoxical, comes from the very particular meaning of wolf bracelets:
In addition to all these meanings, both mystical and divine, the wolf bracelet is the perfect companion for Viking women. Worthy of the alpha females, they occupy a central place in society. They are owed respect and homage, just like the most valiant fighters.
Wolf necklaces are the most popular and widespread Scandinavian jewelry from the Viking era. Wolf pendants could have many designs, and various meanings: the wolf one was undeniably the king's share.
Wolf necklaces and pendants are a great Nordic emblem, combining a sense of belonging with pride in Viking identity. Yet their meanings differ greatly depending on the context:
Our collection of wolf necklaces and pendants is inspired by this same mystical essence. You will find in each of our models allusions that will take you back to the very roots of Viking legends.
To fully appreciate the viking jewelry collections we offer, let's demystify together the origins of the wolf symbol in Viking mythology.
Illegitimate child of the god Loki, the wolf Fenrir is the incarnation of chaos and carnage. Initially raised in Asgard, kingdom of the Aesir gods, he quickly became too great a danger for the pantheon of Nordic deities. From an early age, nothing and no one could control him or his raging fits of rage.
The gods finally decided to imprison him after a priestess predicted that he would kill the god Odin. To prevent this prophecy from coming true, a magical bond; the "Gleipnir" was put in place to contain Fenrir. Unfortunately, even this barrier will not hold forever!
Fenrir will break free during the Ragnarök. With his fury and thirst for vengeance, he will single-handedly swallow up half of the Viking world, and as the prophecy foretold, Odin will succumb to this destructive force.
They are the children of the terrible wolf Fenrir and the giantess "Iarnvidia". Sköll or "hostility" and Hati "hatred" pursue respectively the gods of the sun and the moon. According to Norse mythology, it is partly because of these two wolves that the succession of day and night exists.
During the Ragnarök, Sköll and Hati will finally catch up with these two celestial stars and will end up devouring them. While Fenrir ravages the earth, Sköll and Hati swallow all the stars in the sky.
In the Viking culture, the wolf is an animal that is linked to death. Odin, being the god of the dead, the symbol of the wolf was logically imposed on him. It seems that it is both a metaphor representing the power and devastating force of Odin, but also a way to invoke his protection.
Odin is accompanied by many animals, but the most faithful are the wolves Geri and Freki. According to the legends, their voracity and power are such that even the other gods fear their presence.
