HAGALL RUNENKRUEZ 24K Gold Plated Amulet Pendant Necklace

$49.95

The earliest runic inscriptions date from around AD 150. The characters were generally replaced by the Latin alphabet as the cultures that had used runes underwent Christianization by around AD 700 in central Europe and by around AD 1100 in Northern Europe. However, the use of runes persisted for specialized purposes in Northern Europe.

The three best-known runic alphabets are the Elder Futhark (around 150 to 800 AD), the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc (400 to 1100 AD), and the Younger Futhark (800–1100). The Younger Futhark is further divided into the long-branch runes (also called Danish, although they were also used in Norway and Sweden), short-branch or Rök runes (also called Swedish-Norwegian, although they were also used in Denmark), and the stavesyle or Hälsinge runes (staveless runes). The Younger Futhark developed further into the Marcomannic runes, the Medieval runes (1100 AD to 1500 AD), and the Dalecarlian runes (around 1500 to 1800 AD). The origins of the runic alphabet are not precisely known.

With runes circling around the Younger Futhark rune Hagall (the goddess Hel's rune), this double faced intricate antiqued 24K Gold plated (over a lead and nickel free base metal), high quality, beautifully crafted HAGALL RUNENKRUEZ measures approximately 32 x 40 mm. Your choice of 20", 24" or 28" size antiqued bronze plated chain fitted with lobster claw clasp.

Comes beautifully packaged in a lovely black velvet jewelry gift bag.
