The Lions head protrudes out of shackles. The one thing Norse warriors never wish to go against because of the mixed speed and strength relative to size. The lion's manes flow behind a barrel-like border around its head in a sterling silver fashion completely announcing the pride and strength of its wearer. The popularity of the deities of the Norse pantheon is evident in the names of the days of the week in English, influenced by Germanic and Scandinavian languages brought to Britain before and during the Viking Age. These languages, in turn, were influenced by Latin and brought to various regions by the armies of the Roman Empire. The seven-day week was adopted by the Roman emperor Constantine the Great in 321 CE, replacing the 8-day week the Romans had inherited from the Etruscans. The seven days were all named in honor of a Roman deity, still evident in the days’ names in Romance languages, but in English took on Norse names.
