Runes - ancient writing
For almost 2000 years humans have used runes as characters. For Germanic people, who lived in southern Scandinavia and also in many parts of Germany, the runes had many functions. Runes can serve as single letters, but there are also runes, which alone form a whole word. The oldest inscription known today dates back to the years between 150-200 AD. Only a small part of the population dominated writing at that time and the runes were associated with magical meanings.
In the mythological world, the god Odin is associated with runic writing and the knowledge of the symbolic powers of runes.
The rune of love
It is known from the findings of today's archaeology that runes were mostly carved in metal. The love rune is also made of high-quality tin and can be worn around the neck on the leather strap. As a beautiful symbol of love it is a gift with perhaps even magical effect. Especially for fans of past times this love symbol is a special gift.

Runes have always been magically powerful and exude a special aura. The signs were carved into objects that were particularly important: Especially weapons and jewellery worn on the body. It was probably hoped that the magic formulas would pass into humans. Many myths entwine around the signs. In order for a wish to come true, there were numerous practices in which runes of terms, such as this love rune, were used. The fascination that emanates from the magic signs remains unbroken to this day. Perhaps it will also bring you luck.
Runes have a fascinating charisma, even for people who do not want to believe in their magic abilities. The love rune is not only a beautiful, simple piece of jewellery, but also a special gift for a loved one.
