Genuine handcrafted 925 Sterling Silver signet ring with a sun wheel rune etched Viking shield on the face of the ring. 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. This ring is smoothly polished on the inside for comfortable wear, and comes in a variety of sizes. For more information on how to accurately measure your finger size, please refer to our Ring Sizing Guide.
This variation of the sun wheel was often used by the Alemanni and Bavarian people around the year 400 AD, and was commonly found depicted on brooches and decorations with number of spokes varying between 5 to 13. Presumably the symbol traveled to the Germanic region from Italy, where first depictions of such sun wheel were found on jewelry pieces dated 700-800 BC.
