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.

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.
