The ancients believed that runes possessed magical causative and predictive powers. Elder Futhark runes can be used as positive affirmations and worn as a talisman to attract them into the wearer's life. A ring engraved with runes, words or phrases expressing that which you most desire can assist you greatly in attracting your goals and needs into your life. Each of our custom Elder Futhark Rune Rings are skillfully handcrafted to your exact specifications in your choice of sterling silver, 14k gold, 14k white gold, 18k gold, 22k gold and platinum. Your runes, words or phrases will be hand stamped, one at a time, in the runic symbols of the Ancient Norse Rune Alphabet on the outside and the inside of the band.
Your words and phrases can be translated into Icelandic, the closest modern language to Ancient Norse (ex. Love translates to Ast to ). We can also go directly from the English spelling of your words or phrases to (ex. Love to ). If you would like single runes for their specific meanings or have your own prepared translations, enter in the English letter(s) of the alphabet that correspond with your desired rune (ex. for Protection = Z).
Spaces between words or single runes will be stamped with a dot (as seen on the ring to the left). The runes and spaces can be centered to the front of the ring, leaving any blank space at the back of the band or spaced evenly around the entire band.
Your ring size will determine the number of runes each ring can hold. The chart below indicates how many characters (runes and/or spaces) will fit on each ring size. Please make sure your runes, words, phrases and spaces will fit on your ring size before ordering. Keep in mind, the inside of the band fits 2 fewer characters than the outside of the band. Some words translate to much longer words than expected. You can view a list of popular words and their Icelandic translations on our Rune Key page. The page also features a chart of the Elder Futhark rune alphabet with the names, meanings, uses, and element of each runic symbol. To insure your words or phrases will fit, please contact us and we will translate them for you.
