Sterling Silver Valkyrie/Shield-Maiden Pendant

$58.00


Size: 25mm by 10mm // 1 inch by 0.4 inches
Material: Solid sterling silver, leather cord, handmade glass beads

This replica pendant was hand cast in solid sterling silver and is based on the only 3D depiction of a Valkyrie from the Viking Age. She comes with a genuine leather cord and handmade replica glass beads (based on Norwegian Iron Age archaeological findings) to string alongside her. You can also opt to just purchase the pendant.

She includes all details of the original finding, which was dated to 800AD and discovered in Odense, Denmark, in just 2013. Her two sided sword, elaborate shield, and beautifully knotted hair style (which doubles as the loop to string her from – see picture above) are testament to the power and intrigue of these women of Scandinavian lore. While the original piece is over 1200 years old, the Valkyrie you will receive was hand cast in Sweden and made with quality to last a lifetime and longer.

Additional information:
In Norse mythology, Valkyries are Odin’s associates of war. Often described as supernatural female warriors, they fly to earth during battles and choose the soldiers that will live and die, which Odin dictates. These fallen soldiers are taken to Valhalla, where the Valkyries serve them mead and food at the end of their long training days. They will dine with Odin here until they are called to fight in Ragnarök.

A somewhat more eerie description of Valkyries exists in Njal’s Saga in a portion of Skaldic verse known as Darraðarljoð. Here, Valkyries discuss the choosing of fallen soldiers in a battle outside of Dublin, and weave on a loom with men’s entrails, using their heads as weights and a sword as the shuttle.
Famous Valkyries include Brynhildr, who is mentioned in the Völsunga Saga and Snorri’s Skáldskaparsmál.
