Freya is the most prominent of the Vanir Gods, a goddess associated with domesticity, womanhood, sorcery, magic, and female sexuality as well with war and death. It was said that after a battle, Freya would lead a band of Valkyries to gather one half of the worthy fallen warriors to her hall, Folkvang, while the other half went to Odin, God of wisdom and war. Freya chooses her warriors while riding her flying chariot, which is pulled by two large gray cats named Bygul and Trjegul, who were given to her by Thor. It was a tradition in the Viking culture to give a kitten (or more) to the newly wed, symbolizing the blessings of Freya for the couple. The Triskele, also known as the Triple Horn of Odin is a symbol consisting of three interlocked drinking horns, commonly worn or displayed as a sign of commitment to the norse faith. It commemorates Odin’s quest for the Óðrerir, the mead of poetry, a magical drink that made anyone who drank it become a skald, able to recite any information and solve any question. The Triskele symbolizes Odin’s gift of knowledge to mankind, with each one of the three horns meaning a hard earned sip from the mead of poetry, paid with hard work and cunning intellect. Both Freya and Odin are Gods of Sorcery and Magic and, in many instances,Odin sought Freya’s counsel on matters arcane and mundane alike. The necklace commemorates the friendship and alliance between these powerful Gods, uniting Aesir and Vanir. This beautiful necklace is made of 316L stainless steel, a nickel and molybdenum alloy known for its sturdiness and corrosion resistance.
