Scanda Cross (VP8)
For Love & HarmonyChristianity won Viking converts when missionaries of the church destroyed their pagan temples and yet suffered no divine retribution from the old gods. Vikings travelled through Christian strongholds and their craftsmen embraced the cross, bringing northern artistry to Christian symbolism.
The Vikings were well known for their love of adornments and jewellery. Our Trove of Valhalla collection pays tribute to many of their iconic designs. Lovingly reproduced, the original meanings of each pendant are explained on its accompanying Viking leaflet.
