Huginn and Muninn are the ravens of Odin, his shoulder-perched companions and messengers. It is for this reason that Odin is often referred to as the Raven God, and that ravens feature heavily in Norse mythology and iconography.
The Raven Pendant features the two feathered friends cresting centrally, surrounded by Norse runic inscriptions.

Is sterling silver real silver? The answer is a definite yes. Sterling silver is an alloyed form of silver which is much more suitable to use in jewellery and other metalwork.
Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. In this form the metal is beautiful and suffers from minimal tarnish, but it's generally too soft and malleable for many uses, including making most jewellery.
Instead fine silver is mixed with copper to create sterling silver, which is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. This percentage of fine silver is why you will sometimes see sterling silver referred to as '925 silver' or hallmarked with a 925 stamp.
