Norse troll cross necklace
A Bronze colored Troll Cross Viking Necklace with beautiful studs around its loop.
The Troll Cross is also known as a Trollkors and was believed to ward off evil spirits and dangerous forms of magic. Particularly, the Troll Cross was meant to ward off trolls, which were apparently causing a lot of havoc in Nordic mythology. Unlike most Viking symbols, there is a heavy presence of Troll Crosses in Nordic burial sites.
As a matter fact, some sources claim that the Troll Cross was first created by ‘Smith of Dalarna’ in the early 1990s and Kari Erlands later turned the symbol into an accessory after stumbling upon it in her grandparents’ house.
The symbol resembles the Othala rune, a symbol used in pre-Roman Europe to symbolize family and matters of a family such as heritage, estate, and inheritance. In olden times, the Vikings would wrap the symbol around their livestock’s’ necks to protect them from being attacked by trolls.
From all this history, it would consequently be accurate to conclude that this chain is the primary symbol of protection in Nordic culture and will keep whoever wears it safe from any malevolent forces as well as creatures that would seek to do him/her harm.
