This pendant is based on the Norse protection symbol called Vegvísir. This Icelandic word literally means 'guidepost' or 'direction sign'. In modern popular culture the Vegvísir is often called Runic Compass or See the Way. It is often associated with the Viking Age, which is not correct: this symbol is from the 17th century Icelandic grimoire called Galdrabók
This pendant is supplied on a 54cm cord with metal fittings. Occasionally the metal links can pull apart so please test the links before wearing.
