The Thor's Hammer or Hammer of Thor is an ancient Norse symbol. In Norse mythology, Thor is the god of thunder, and his hammer named Mjölnir has the power of lightning.
This cool Norse Valknut Thor's hammer necklace is made of solid stainless steel.
The Thor's hammer has a Valknut symbol on the front side and a rune symbol on the backside. The name Valknut is not a traditional Viking name but a modern Norwegian title given to the symbol. It combines the words for a slain warrior, "valr," and knot "knut" to mean knot of slain warriors. This name Valknut, appears to be associated with the dead and with Odin, the god of war and the dead.
This Viking pendant has a high polish and gold color PVD finish with antiquing to highlight the details.
The Viking pendant (with bail) approximately measures 43mm long x 35mm wide x 6mm thick. The bail can accommodate a chain or cord necklace up to 4mm wide.
The Viking pendant will arrive ready to wear on a 24-inch 3.4mm wide stainless steel Spiga chain necklace that has an easy-to-use lobster claw clasp.
