Hi...

It was the center one which gave me the clue as to what this selection could be. It is more than likely a Ægirshjálmr, the Helm of Awe or Helm of Terror in Seidr, Old Norse magic, and probably Icelandic. If so, it was a part of the magic called sjónhverfing, which was used to affect the mind with forgetfulness, delusion, illusion, fear, delusion or deceiving of the sight. It looks similar to this:

These are obviously amulets, but I would caution against wearing them until you research them more. You can begin at these links:
