Viking Store presents you this new ring strong in symbolism, as it represents the Valknut.
The word Valknut is a neologism: it is formed in modern times by the combination of valr, "the dead" or "the wounded" and knut, "knot". Valknut is the Viking symbol of three interconnected triangles.
The original meaning and function of Valknut is not entirely clear.
The number three is a very common magical symbol in many cultures.
However, in the Scandinavian context, three multiplied by three could designate the nine worlds, which are united by the Yggdrasil tree.
In modern times, it is often interpreted as a symbol indicating pagan beliefs.
On this ring, we can distinguish two other symbols of the Nordic culture:
- The Raven. Symbol of Odin
- The runes. The old alphabet
With all these symbols combined in a single jewel, it is obvious that this ring will appeal to all fans of Nordic Mythology.
