A striking ring design that you won't see anywhere else! Mystical and magical, this ring is adorned with alternating valknut knots and topped with Noric Helm of Awe and accented with a beautiful round 3mm Moissanite stone in the center!
From wikipedia: The Helm of Awe or Helm of Terror (Icelandic: Ægishjálmr, Old Norse Œgishjalmr) is an Icelandic magical stave. A physical object called "Helm of Terror" is referenced as one item Sigurd takes from the dragon Fafnir's hoard after he slays him in Völsunga saga. Stanza 16 of Fáfnismál in the Poetic Edda also mentions:
The Helm of Awe
I wore before the sons of men
In defense of my treasure;
Amongst all, I alone was strong,
I thought to myself,
For I found no power a match for my own.
The valknut (coined from Old Norse valr, "slain warriors" and knut, "knot") is a symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles. It appears on a variety of objects from the archaeological record of the ancient Germanic peoples. The compound noun valknut is from the modern era. The term used for the symbol during its historical employment is unknown.
Scholars have proposed a variety of explanations for the symbol, sometimes associating it with the god Odin, and it has been compared to the three-horned symbol found on the 9th-century Snoldelev Stone, with which it may be related. Hilda Ellis Davidson theorizes a connection between the valknut, the god Odin and "mental binds":
For instance, beside the figure of Odin on his horse shown on several memorial stones there is a kind of knot depicted, called the valknut, related to the triskele. This is thought to symbolize the power of the god to bind and unbind, mentioned in the poems and elsewhere. Odin had the power to lay bonds upon the mind, so that men became helpless in battle, and he could also loosen the tensions of fear and strain by his gifts of battle-madness, intoxication, and inspiration.

We will give you a quote and if you agree, begin working on your custom design. This process can take 4-12 weeks depending on the design. Once you approve the design, we will create a custom listing for you to purchase. Upon full payment, your ring will enter production which takes 4-6 weeks.
Our rings are made with lab-grown stones. These are REAL STONES (not fake cubic zirconia) and they are chemically identical to naturally occurring ones, but they are better for the earth because we can find them in a lab versus having to dig randomly in the soil.
Upon request, we can make rings with natural stones such as Diamonds, Topaz, Ruby etc Please contact us for a quote as this will dramatically increase the price since these stones are mined at premium costs.
We can make any ring in sterling silver, gold (10K, 14K, 18K, yellow, white, or rose) or platinum.
We do not offer tungsten, steel, or titanium.
If the size change is minor, we may be able to resize the ring at no extra cost. However for larger changes, or rings with stones and continuous knotwork, the ring will need to be remade completely for a small cost (depends on the metal purchased). Creating a new ring takes our standard 4-6 weeks.
For purchases over $400, we offer 2 or 4 monthly payment options.
For purchases over $1500 contact us for a 6 payment plan.
We are flexible on finish dates, but we require rings to be paid in full before we begin working on them (rings take 4-6 weeks to create). Please keep this in mind if you need your rings for a specific date.
We suggest polished + patina for most rings.
Patina is a method of darkening metal through oxidation. This allows small details to stand out and gives the ring a beautiful contrast. Almost all our photos use patina.
Polish is the standard finish you see in high end jewelry - bright, shiny and very reflective.
Brushed is a matte finish recommended for those who are hard on their hands or do rough work. The surface will not be shiny so it hides any scuffs that might occur during wear. Be warned, this will look much duller than our polished finish.
Please see last image in listings for examples of the different finish styles.
Our rings are handmade and take 4-6 weeks to create from the time an order is placed, plus 3-10 days for shipping.
