Vikings used necklaces with animals or beasts biting onto a ring where pendants were hung. This variant consists of a King Chain ending in Járngreipr, the iron gauntlets of Thor, that hold onto the pendant ring. The gauntlets have "THOR VIKI" written on them with runes, which translates to "Thor protect/bless". They hold onto the pendant ring with a large Mjölnir pendant with a goat holding the Hammer of Thor between its teeth. Thor’s chariot was pulled by the goats Tanngrisnir ("teeth-barer, snarler") and Tanngnjóstr ("teeth grinder"). "ASA THOR" is written with runes on the shaft, which translates to "Thor the Aesir".

Our King Chain is 100% handmade from Stainless Steel, which results in a piece of fantastic jewelry that will never rust. The process of crafting it by hand is very time-consuming, since each small link is added one by one to the chain. The chain comes with a lobster clasp that keeps this massive piece secured around your neck, as well as a pendant ring that can be opened and closed easily.
