A thick and heavy Viking armring made in twisted, solid bronze. It ends in the heads of Hati and Sköll, the wolves destined to swallow the moon and the sun come Ragnarök. Wear it around your wrist and push it up your arm if you need to get it out of the way.
Armrings were often given by powerful chieftains to secure allegiance from their followers. Bestowing such gifts was a demonstration of wealth and power, and the warrior who accepted the gift pledged his loyalty to the chieftain through doing so. This has led to armrings gifted in that manner to be known as ‘Oath Rings’. Wearing armrings were also a way of carrying your ‘money’, since they were often made from silver or gold.
