Thor's hammer pendant, authentic Viking jewelry

Faroese Thor's Hammer

$ 28.00

One of the best-known symbols of Norse mythology, the Mjöllnir is the hammer of Thor, the Norse god of thunder. In addition to being worn as a symbol of strength and protection, the Thor's hammer was frequently used in ceremonial blessings.

Based on a Viking age find from the Faroe Islands, this large, pewter Thor's hammer comes on a stainless steel chain and hanging loop with pewter dragon heads. Norse settlement in the Faroe Islands can be traced back to sometime between the 9th and 10th centuries.

  • made from pewter
  • comes with a waxed linen cord in black
  • pendant dimensions: 2 in. x 2 in.
  • hand-made in Scotland
