Vikings considered Norse symbols as a connection with destiny and spirituality, the two things that were sacred to any Viking. Having fate on their side could mean the difference between life and death, and there is no need to waste words to underscore the significance of the Norse mythology Gods during the Viking age.
These are the two reasons why Norse symbols have such an important place within Viking culture, and why almost every piece of Viking Jewelry was associated with some of the symbols.
As Norsemen genuinely believed that the symbols held power, it comes as no surprise that they wanted to have them around in the face of danger or uncertainty. They lived in the heat, cold, wind, and rain. They sailed across open seas, fought countless battles, and they needed to believe that destiny and the Gods were on their side.
This is why Vikings engraved these divine symbols into their jewelry, painted them on shields, stitched them onto their clothing, and carved them onto their longships.
All because of the feeling that both fate and their Gods were on their side.
