    "...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.

    Excellent Item

    Excellent item and exactly as described, it is made of the pure silver they mention, and looks amazing in person. I bought it as a gift and she loved it and hasn't taken it off since it was given to her. 10 out of 10 I would buy from here again.
