A fair share of these jewels are replicas of historical viking pieces. As such, these are perfect accessories for the demanding reenactors.

Here are some of the many representations of Mjöllnir, the Hammer Thor wields when protecting the worlds against the giants responsible for chaos. The sound of the hammer can be heard by everyone when there's a storm.
In the viking times, it was a very common amulet, probably for good luck and protection, but also for fertility. It is interesting to note that there still was a rite in early XXth century Sweden, to place such a hammer in newly-weds' bed on their honeymoon night to ensure their fertility.

This piece is a reproduction of an exceptional archaeological find from Købelev,on the island of Lolland, Denmark, dated Xth century.

As researchers still had a doubt concerning the real significance of amulets of this shape, actually thought to depict the Hammer but without certainty, this find settled the question in a crystal-clear way. Runes are inscribed on the backside of the pendant reading HMAR x IS, in old Norse HAMARR ER which translates as "This is a hammer". Now the only remaining question is to know whether the craftsperson who cast this jewel had a partial knowledge of the runes, or if the placing and missing runes are a result of their will to imbue the amulet with magic.
