Vikingur Compass Ring

Description

As a descendant of Vikings himself, Kristjan wanted to pay tribute to his ancestors through jewellery

Drawing inspiration from traditional Icelandic Sagas and Runes, these pieces embody strength, pride and history.

The story of the Viking Compass has its roots in the Icelandic Sagas. According to these chronicles, the Vikings used a ‘sunstone’ to locate the hidden sun in bad weather conditions and so navigate safely. This sunstone has since been identified as Iolite. Another gemstone highly prized and used by the Vikings is the garnet. We have used both these gemstones in our Vikingur collection.

The Vikingur Compass ring uses these meaningful gemstones and has been enhanced further by the engraving of the Vegvísir, a Norse protection symbol popularly known as a Runic Compass and found within the Galdrabók, an Icelandic book of magic. The translation of Vegvísir from Icelandic is ‘guidepost’ or ‘direction sign’. This symbol helps the wearer to never lose his way.

This symbol combined with the sunstone make the Vikingur Compass ring a meaningful modern icon of the Viking explorer spirit.

Metals: 100% sustainable Australian Sterling Silver, Platinum and 18ct Yellow, Rose and White Gold.

Centre Stones: Garnet or Iolite cabochons.
