Tanngnjóstr are the goats who pull the god Thor's chariot in Norse mythology.
They are attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier
traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written by Snorri Sturluson in the
Edda relates that when Thor cooks the goats, their flesh provides sustenance
for the god, and, after Thor resurrects them with his hammer, Mjölnir, they are
brought back to life the next day.
According to the same source, Thor once stayed
a night at the home of peasant farmers and shared with them his goat meal, yet
one of their children, Þjálfi, broke one of the bones to suck out the marrow,
resulting in the lameness of one of the goats upon resurrection.
Gift giving was an important ritual in Old Norse societies.
Arm rings were used to signify a rite of passage.
A promise made on an arm ring would not be broken without dire consequences to the maker.
The arm ring is made up of stainless steel for durability.
It is a perfect gift for weddings, anniversary, graduation, birthdays and other life events.
