Enhance your facial hair’s look In Viking Fashion With This Aegishjalmur Beard Bead!
With this stylish Viking Beard Bead, you can give shape and control to your braided beard in true Norse fashion. This beard bead will make your facial hair stand out from the rest!
Ægishjálmur (Old Norwegian: helmet of fear/helm of terror) is an old magic symbol that induces fear in enemies and protects against negative powers. If a Viking had this on his person, be that in the form of jewelry or as a tattoo, he knew that he was protected from anything life threw at him. It is mentioned in ancient sagas, such as in the Völsunga saga, where the dragon Fafnir wears one between his eyes. Scenes from the Völsunga saga are depicted on a runic stone in Swedish Uppland, dated around the year 1000.
Vikings used rings on their beards for decorative reasons and functionality. The beads or rings keep Vikings' long beards out of the way while they raid, swing axes, or do other activities.
Made from high-quality stainless steel, these exquisitely crafted and highly detailed beard beads will complete your fashionable bearded Viking look!
