This decorative ring contains a mixed Magenta & Opal quality for those thinking of getting hitched.
Modern couples have no reason to involve their families in their wedding negotiations. And we also tend to marry for love more than for creating a strong household to support our families in times of war. So truly proposing like a historical Viking is kind of out of the question, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take elements of their love and apply it to your own!
The Vikings revered the words of their skalds. If there’s a passage of literature that suits your love, feel free to spout it. It’ll be better if it’s memorized. Here are some suggestions from the Eddas:
“It is like a man | whom no one loves,– Why should his life be long?”
“And I said to him that I had made a vow in my turn, that I would never marry a man who knew the meaning of fear.”
And, of course:
Thou should never sleep in the arms of a sorceress, lest she lock thy limbs (113).
