Why did the Vikings wear jewelry?
You're probably wondering why we're asking this question. After all, the most likely answer is simply that they wanted to wear it. After all, there is no need to explain why we want to wear jewelry. Nevertheless, the Vikings had their own reason.
The first explanation is simply that they wanted to be decorated. They didn't really like being without anything, which could be a largely sufficient explanation. In other words, it simply allowed them to have an outfit and an appearance, much more beautiful, which is not negligible. But it was not only the Vikings who wished to have a more beautiful appearance: it is, in general, people living in ancient times who strongly appreciate wearing jewelry.
But it went much further than that! Indeed, the second reason why, the Vikings wore jewelry to simply show their social status. It should be known that only the rich and people with a high position in society could afford to have jewelry with precious stones.
As you can see, it is rather difficult for people with an average standard of living to have jewelry with precious stones, for example.
The reason why the Vikings wore jewelry may surprise you, but it was a real form of currency in those days. You might wonder how this was possible: simply because some rings and necklaces were made of silver. And they could cut off a piece to give in exchange for a commodity. Pretty ingenious, don't you think?
The last reason why the Vikings wore jewelry was simply their belief. They were a very religious people and they whorship their gods a lot, which was not a negligible thing at the time. For example, the warriors wore amulets to be protected during the fights.
As you can see, there are various reasons why the Vikings wore jewelry. And it is quite funny to see that the reasons differ a lot nowadays!
Viking jewelry: a symbol of strength!
Now that you know a little more about the different reasons why the Vikings wore jewelry, we're going to tell you more about the different symbols. And you'll certainly be amazed at what it can mean to the Vikings! Ready for take-off? Let's go!
The first symbolic jewel that we will talk about is the hammer of Mjölnir or Thor's Hammer
. It should be known that at the time, Thor was the god of thunder and storm. In other words, it was not necessarily the person to piss off. But the symbolism is simple to understand: Thor's hammer never missed its target. This is why the warriors did not want to part with their amulets bearing the effigy of Thor. Let's also note that the god had succeeded in knocking out a giant with it. Quite impressive, then!
The second piece of jewelry we are going to talk about is the Viking axe
. It is a symbol very well known in the world, whether it is today or several centuries ago. But don't panic, we'll explain why: the Vikings were able to bend the world to their will with this axe. Another strong symbolism that comes straight from the North!
The last jewel with strong symbolism in ancient times is none other than the Futhark Runes. And these are very strong symbols. Why are they so strong? Simply because the destiny of all beings in the cosmos are inside the wheel of the universe. And the person being able to understand the runes were also able to learn more about the laws of the cosmos. So it is the most powerful symbols among the Vikings.

As you can imagine, Thor's hammer amulet was one of the favorite, but also the most worn jewels in Viking times. Indeed, as a symbol of protection, it was particularly appreciated during the fights. Nevertheless, it is necessary to know that this jewel existed in different forms: it was possible to find it in necklace, just like in bracelet, for example. So everyone could find something to wear easily and quickly.
As you can see, jewelry was very important to the Vikings. Indeed, they could not do without this kind of accessories to go out.
