"Helm of Awe", Aegishjalmur Pendant
- Material: 100% Sterling silver
- Weight: 6.9 grams
- Item number: wh134
The Helm of Awe, also known as the Aegishjalmur, is an ancient Icelandic or Viking symbol meant to provide its wearer with mental, physical and spiritual protection.
The form of the symbol itself speaks of protection - 8 pointed tridents radiate from a center circle, protecting this vital center from hostile forces in all directions.
In the Poetic Edda, a collection of anonymous Old Norse poems, the dragon Fafnir speaks of his invincibility because he bears this symbol:
The Helm of Awe
I wore before the sons of men
In defense of my treasure;
Amongst all, I alone was strong,
I thought to myself,
For I found no power a match for my own.
During the Viking era, some warriors would wear this symbol between their brows to give them strength and to bring them to victory.
The Celtic knot border gives this pendant a traditional look, while the antiqued finish highlights the figure of the Aegishjalmur.
A beautiful piece and good quality. I would recommend!
Beautiful piece of jewellery!
This well-crafted pendant is authentic looking and impressive. As nice as some pieces I have purchased in Scandinavia. Highly recommend it!
Every thing is great.

All I can say is WOW! This is an absolutely stunning piece which will complement the femininity of the wearer. It is stylish yet pleasingly ingenious in it’s simplicity. The craftsmanship is just beautiful. It is constructed of heavyweight silver and hangs gracefully on a chain or cord. It arrived incredibly fast, elegantly packaged in a green velvet pouch with a thoughtful card discussing the meaning of the Pentacle/Pentagram. I couldn’t ask for a better online shopping experience, 5 stars to Woot & Hammy as a company and 5 stars to the lovely new addition of this Pentacle to my jewelry collection.
This is beautiful. I have been looking for a pendant for a very long time. For over a year I kept searching for all three icons. Moon, raven and pentagram included in it. I usually found 2 out of 3, no luck untill I found your webste. It was packaged wonderfully and included a cleaning method that I was unaware of. Plus, it arrived ahead of schedule. I definintely will be back for more.
This is officially my favorite pendant ever! I haven't taken it off since I got it. I love the size of it and how thin it is When you look at it from the side. I don't have a single pendant like this! I will definitely be buying more from this company.
I recently purchased my wife a beautiful pentagram pendant and chain and I was so impressed by the quality and service i decided I'd order some earrings and a couple rings for her. I received an email with a 20% coupon code. I could not get it to work so I emailed woot and hammy. Not only did they respond the same day, they made me my own personalized discount code. Now that's service! Amazing craftsmanship, great prices even better service. We will be back for more...
I am so happy with my new Flower of Life pendant. It is so beautiful and just the right size for my taste.
Woot & Hammy have the best customer service and beautiful jewelry. I have bought a number of pieces from them and love them all.
Along with everything else I have ordered, I love them, and I wear them a lot. I am allergic to nickel so I usually only buy sterling silver, I love Woot & Hammy, they have such reasonable prices and beautiful pieces. I'm looking for a bumblebee necklace also looking for star or Xmax tree earings.
I am giving you a 5 star review because I was very impressed not only with my pendant, but with the presentation and service. When I saw a hummingbird in my terrace for the first time, the little bird stole my heart. I was in awe. Thank you for making possible for me to remember that moment. Nitza
Love the bracelet, yet had to purchase an extender for it. It’s PERFECT! Love the silver jewelry.
Norma-Ken are super. Items wrapped well and very pretty! Thank you so much!
My Mother-in-Law lost her Husband a few years ago and keeps finding like white feathers in strange places. She tells me they are from her late Husband. So when I found the Finding Feathers Ring I thought it was just the gift she needed. I wanted to see the ring before forwarding it to her in England. I was delighted to see the package had arrived sooner than expected. As I opened the padded envelope that had protected it on its journey to me, I found it was again protected in a sealed clear bag, which allowed me to see that it had been gift wrapped in the most delightful floral paper. I unwrapped it to find a lovely box and inside was the most stunningly beautiful Finding a Feather Ring. I was taken back with the attention to delay and the the caring manager in which this ring was presented and how well protected it was. I am sure I will be doing a lot more business with this wonderful company. With Thanks
What can I say: FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS , SOOO SWEET!!!! Love this Sweet necklace! Perfect for some one WHO IS CRAZY ABOUT THE. MOON, ME!!!🌖🌙
Coming in such a precious package, I felt like Christmas!! Thank you!!!
Absolutely love my ring!! Fits perfectly!! Love the details!! The customer service is EXCELLENT. And OUTSTANDING!!!!😊💕 I will be telling EVERYONE, THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO SHOP!!
I love this ring. It is dainty, nicely polished and beautiful. Presentation is everything to me and it arrived early Beautifully wrapped.
Both the necklace I have purchased and the overall service were up to my expectation and exceeded. I liked the beautiful and ample amount of parcel wrappings came with the necklace, it reflects how much you guys are serious in what you do.
Another thing to mention is the time it takes to get your questions answered whether via email or facebook was satisfying.
All in all, I enjoyed my experience with woot&hammy, and certainly recommend them.
I found a picture of the Love of Angels Heart-Shaped Wings Necklace on Pinterest. I thought it was so beautiful and I decided to order it. It arrived in a very timely manner, very neatly packaged. When I opened the package it was just as the review title says - JUST PERFECT - needless to say I am very pleased with the necklace- the chain and the pendant have a beautiful shine. Would not hesitate to order again from Woot & Hammy. The owners are very cordial and wanted to make sure that I was pleased with my purchase. THANKS WOOT & HAMMY
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with woot&hammy! I found this beautiful pendant because I was looking for a necklace to honor the baby I recently lost to miscarriage. My husband and I feel this baby will always be an important part of our family, and this necklace will allow Angel to be represented in our family photos. The symbolism of the heart with the angel wings is perfect for this! When I ordered, there was a question about how I found the company, and I answered with an explanation of my Google search. I was so pleasantly surprised to receive a very thoughtful and kind email from Norma the very next day. I knew right then I had made the right choice with this necklace, but the experience only got better!
When the necklace arrived, it was so beautifully packaged. It was such a treat to slowly unwrap it an enjoy each layer and all the special care and details. It was wrapped in a lovely, vibrant, floral tissue paper. There was a fun scratcher card for a future discount and a little blue velvet bag to store the necklace in after opening.
The necklace, itself, is very high quality and sturdy. The details are crisp, and the pendant gleams in the light. Even the chain catches the light in such a dazzling way! I am truly delighted with my pendant, and I will definitely be looking to woot&hammy again for any future jewelry needs!
