The arm ring, or oath ring, is a symbol of manhood in Norse culture.
At the age a Viking boy becomes a man he is given an arm ring by his Earl, swearing his allegiance to the Earl and being considered a man as far as rights are concerned. At this age the arm ring fits only on the bicep. As the young man grows the arm ring no longer fits the bicep and moves down to the upper forearm. Lastly when the young man is fully grown the arm ring is worn around the wrist, signaling full adulthood.
Any oath sworn upon your arm ring is unbreakable. For if you do, shame follows you and you shall never see Valhalla.
