    "...if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."
    —Huld Manuscript
    The Vegvísir, or Norse compass, is an Icelandic magical stave, which, according to the Huld manuscript, protects one from losing their way in bad weather.The vikings used the word "hafvilla" or "bewildered" which means to have no sense of direction or be lost at sea. We created this pendant to help guide us through modern moments of hafvilla.

    Encircling the Vegvísir is the runic transliteration of the Icelandic phrase, "Ég stoppar ekki Þegar Þreyttur, ég stoppar Þegar ég er búinn", which translates to, "I do not stop when tired, I stop when done."

    The coin is struck with an incuse design, in which the letters are lowered rather than raised. This way the lettering will stay dark even if the coin is carried daily. The coin is double sided with the same design on both sides.

    Designed and engraved by Woody Maringer. Learn more about our artists.

    This necklace is great. I'm happy with my purchase. The leather necklace is at a good length and the silver Norse compass has great detail. I'll wear it everyday

    Amazing Customer Service

    I wrote another review talking about how I would like another cord since mine was starting to wear early on. The Shire Post Mint team took the time to send me another cord and a SPM coin and I was so surprised. They are incredibly considerate and I love how they obviously take the time to read reviews and work with their customers. This just reaffirms my choices in all of my purchases from them. Truly amazing customer service and another reason why I love small businesses.
