Material: Solid sterling silver
This solid sterling silver torc bracelet, also known as a Viking arm ring, is a sturdy piece of jewelry that can be passed down for generations because it is handcrafted like the original pieces a truly unique piece no two are exactly alike.
Mysterious, powerful, wise, and destructive – dragons and magical serpents appear in the mythologies and folklores of Europe, Asia, and the ancient Americas.
Dragons appear often in Norse stories, even in sagas such as Ragnar Lodbrok’s (where he is said to have slain one, thus earning his name).
But, the most famous dragon in Norse Mythology is likely Níðhöggr. Mentioned in both Grímnismál and Völuspá, his notoriety comes from his perpetual gnawing of the roots of the world tree, Yggdrasil.
We also see in the Volsunga saga that a dwarf named Fáfnir actually becomes a dragon (likely due to his greed in guarding a great treasures). He is later slain by the heroic Sigurðr, and a taste of this serpent’s blood bestows great knowledge and the ability to speak to birds.
The Midgard Serpent, also known as Jǫrmungandr (and one of Loki’s children) is another famous dragon/serpent. He is the enemy of Thor, and will destroy the god during Ragnarök.
Jǫrmungandr encircles the world of Midgard with his body by biting his own tail, a symbol of ouroboros (also seen in ancient Egypt and Greece). To many, this represents the “circle of life.” Creation cannot come without destruction, and all things are connected infinitely.
