Krato is celebrating this summer with Viking beard jewelry collection. Besides of being fierce warriors and explorers, Vikings had distinctive beard look and a powerful appearance. Many men who grow the beard today are inspired by the Viking style.
From approximately 800 AD - 1066 Vikings roamed Eastern and Western Europe. The majority of Viking heritage originated in the Scandinavian countries of Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. Vikings mastered craftsmanship of ships, which became an integral part of their culture of exploration and trade.
Archeological studies of Norse culture show that Vikings loved jewelry and extensively decorated themselves with items crafted from bronze, silver and gold. Viking jewelry depicted abstract patterns and incorporated images of animals, nature and mythology. Not only it reflected Vikings’ allegiance to their gods, beliefs and heritage, but also portrayed the strength of the wearer.
After carefully studying Norse history and mythology, Krato created a collection of beard jewelry inspired by the Viking culture. The collection includes 925 sterling silver and silver-plated Thor's Hammer, Wolf, Compass, and Warrior Swords.
Mjölnir is the hammer of Thor and is one of the most important symbols in Norse mythology. It was believed that Thor, the god of thunder, used the supernatural forces of his hammer to protect humanity. Intricate design of this beard jewelry incorporates the Trinity Knot as continuous reminder of strength of the wearer.
Wolf - is a symbol of wisdom and bravery and is meant to bring out the best in its wearer.
Thor's Hammer - is an amulet of protection and power.
Compass - will help to stay on the right life path and steer the way through ups and downs.
Swords - is the ultimate weapon of any warrior and a symbol of strength.
