Thor, the god of thunder and lightning, is the strongest of the Aesir and protector of both gods and humans. He is married to the beautiful goddess Sif, known for her golden hair and whose elegance we represent with the double White and Rose Gold bracelet. Thor has long hair and a beard that too are beautiful and represent his fiery personality, although in pop culture he has been frequently depicted as blond. So that you can pick your favourite god of thunder, we offer both a Black and Rose Gold and a Black and Gold bracelet.
In spite of his incredible bravery and brawn, Thor’s short-temper makes him an easy target for giant’s practical jokes. One time Loki, famous for his pranks, cut off Sif’s hair to provoke Thor. This got the warrior raging, so to fix the situation the prankster went to Niðavellir and had two dwarf brothers create Sif new hair from pure gold. To ensure Thor was content enough not to hurt him, Loki also challenged the dwarves to smith an artifact more beautiful than anything previously seen—the Mjölnir hammer. This hammer does not break, when thrown it does never miss its target and always returns to Thor’s hand; other than a weapon, it is a hallowing and purifying tool as well. The hammer Mjölnir became Thor’s most well-known possession, and you can now wear his strength and blessings with our classic, the Black and Silver bracelet.
Amongst his possessions are also the belt of power Megingjörð, which doubles Thor’s strength, the Járngreipr gloves, and a staff called Gríðarvölr given to him by the giantess Gríðr. Thor also possesses a chariot pulled by two goats (Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr) and feeds on the goats, that he then resurrects with his hammer. Although Thor is known mostly for his unmatchable strength, he is also an agriculture and fertility deity. With his Mjölnir, Thor blessed the land so the crops could grow abundantly.
At Thor of Sweden, we are greatly inspired by Norse Mythology, Thor’s strength and determination, and invite you to take a bit of that power with our Thor Bracelets and now the new Hammer Necklace.
