This is the symbol of the Valknut. The central triangles are called The Valknut or The Knot of the Fallen and is a sacred symbol of Odin.
Surrounding the Valknut is a ring with 9 points which is symbolic of Odin's Magic Ring.
Nine is described in ancient Norse texts as a magical number of grand cycles, and completion and closure. This Magical Ring was laid on the funeral pyre of Odin's son, Baldr (the sun), and represents reincarnation.
This pendant leads the wearer's higher self to victory over darkness and to help balance the triple triangles of mind, body, and spirit bringing resurrection and rebirth.
This double sided amulet comes ready to wear on a 30 inch soft black cord (knotted lace). It measures just over 1 inch across.
Valknut the Knot of the Fallen Excelsior Pewter Pendant
These pendants have been given the name Excelsior because of the unsurpassed quality of their workmanship and materials. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA by Pepi Pewter, fabulously detailed, and brought to a high polish.
They each have a good weight to them and are crafted from the finest pewter - lead and nickel free.
Here at Wicked Stones, we've been wearing these types of pendants over the years and have found that they stand up excellently to being worn 24/7 for very long periods of time. We've been overly delighted on how long they have lasted.
