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.
