This is a real solid bronze Viking style hand-crafted double sided antique finish pendant. The pendant features the Aegishjalmur, or Helm of Awe, symbol on the one side and the Vegvisir, or Runic Compass, symbol on the other side.
Aegishjalmur, or the Helm of Awe, is an Icelandic magical symbol of protection, also called stave, which has the power to induce fear and to protect against abuse of power. Early Vikings used to inscribe it on the forehead between the eyes. Aegishjalmur's main purpose was to protect and dominate in battle and also to instill fear and conquer fear in own mind.
Vegvisir – a 'sign post' or 'runic compass', is an Icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. A page in the Huld Manuscript includes the image of the sigil and states that if this sign is carried, one will never lose his/her way in storms or bad weather even when the way is not know.

For bronze and silver items it's best to clean with a polishing cloth or jewelry cleaner which will give them a shine. But for those who like a more authentic look and feel for their jewelry which develops patina overtime, there are really no special care instructions.
For forged iron items, it's a good idea to coat with a clear acrylic lacquer or wax to avoid rusting and keep off water as much as possible.
For leather items, it's also best to avoid prolonged contact with water because leather is a natural material and can deteriorate with time.
We currently don't offer gift wrapping or packaging, but some pendants and rings come with optional leather pouches.
