Genuine handcrafted 925 Sterling Silver king's chain with Viking ornamental shield. Viking shields often bore decoration designs on them and were always hung on the side of the longboat as an additional defense while sailing and for easy access to one when a skirmish starts. Two wolf heads are completing the ends of the king's chain, holding the pendant ring in their maws. This chain and Viking shield are a complete piece, and pendant cannot be separated from the chain.
Wolves play a major role in Norse mythology, as Odin created the first wolves to act as his companions during his travels. He named his new canine companions Geri and Freki, the ravenous and the greedy one, who slowly populated the world with their offspring during Odin’s journeys. First humans were said to learn from Geri and Freki on how to cooperate during hunts and care for their close ones. Wolves were iconic of strength and community in Nordic culture, and were often depicted in religious drawings or carved on everyday items and charms.
