    • Description

      This beautiful stylised wolf motif was discovered cast into the handle of a sword. This sword was all the more remarkable because it was buried with its woman owner, in a Viking grave in Finland. Was she a shield maiden, one of the legendary female warriors of the Viking Age? Or was the sword a symbol of her power and authority? This little wolf formed part of the elegant lines of the Urnes art style that flowed over the bronze hilts.

      The wolf was the symbol of a warrior in the Viking Age and I have carved this ancient motif into a modern Viking wolf ring.

      Size

      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:

      Large ring
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 73mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 64mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 56mm circumference.

      Small ring
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 58mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 50mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 44mm 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.
