Viking Raven Ring with Runes
This is one of my favourite viking designs, taken from a stunning piece of metalwork called the Sollested horse collar from 10th century Denmark. The stylised interlace shows the abstract form of two viking ravens, Huginn and Muninn, the two spirit guides of the god Odin. They represent the power of the mind and served Odin in his quest for wisdom. Their names translate as Thought and Memory and are inscribed in runes on either side of the bird’s heads. Just as these mythical birds were woven into the fate of the world, their bodies are interwoven in the design of the ring.
This is my remodelling of this ancient artwork from our Viking past as a sterling silver raven ring.
I have made this 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:
At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 76mm circumference.
At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 64mm circumference.
At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 58mm circumference.
At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 67mm circumference.
At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 59mm circumference.
At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 51mm 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. There is a film about how to do this on our YouTube Channel. You can copy this link into your browser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSHPWaQP_8A&t=32s
If you prefer, you can add a note to your order and we will adjust the ring for you to a specific size.
