This pendant is inspired by Old Norse drinking horns and is handsomely decorated – on both sides. It's got a bold Celtic knot pattern that sits on top of a darkened background with a hammered.finish, and a contrasting geometric pattern framing the brim or drinking edge.

Details are set off by an oxidized finish, and the pendant's slightly rounded shape is a nod to the original horns and gives it depth.

Archeologists have dated drinking horns to have been used all the way back to 600bc and they remained in use through the Middle Ages. They were traditionally made from the horns of various bovid like antelopes, oxen, sheep and goats, and the Vikings most probably used the horns of their own domestic cattle. Drinking horns were also fashioned from metals and clay to resemble the natural ones. And some natural ones were fitted with silver or other material - like in this pendant - for a more comfortable drinking brim.

Based on the horns used, it's estimated that drinking horns held less than half a liter, but in the Prose Edda (an Old Norse epic piece of literature), Thor drank from a horn large enough to contain all the seas.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
