    • Description

      A genuine Norse inscription to bring good luck. Runes were a form of lettering for the Germanic peoples, the Vikings included, but they were also laden with mystical significance. The Old Norse poem Havamal tells of how Odin hung himself on the World Tree for nine nights, pierced with a spear, in order to learn the secrets of the runes. Ancient inscriptions of magical spells have been found on many objects, including rings. Nowadays many people make rune rings - but I have used an original sacred inscription from the 6th century from Denmark. The runes read GIBU:AUJA  - I give good luck.

      Sizes 

      I have made the ring in two sizes. They are open at the back so both are adjustable and you can bend them gently for a perfect fit.

      Which size is right for you? As a rough guide: on an average hand, the small ring will fit a female index finger or a male little finger. The large ring will fit an average male index finger.

      If you want to be more exact, please measure the circumference of your finger with a strip of paper, and compare your millimeter measurement with this table:

      Large ring
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 70mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 63mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 59mm circumference.

      Small ring
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 61mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 58mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 54mm circumference.

      You can adjust the ring easily yourself by using a piece of wood, or something similar, to prise the ring open, or to tap it to a smaller size. If you prefer, you can add a note to your order in the comments section and we will adjust the ring for you to a specific size.
