Amulet of Warding
The Amulet of Warding is an item in Hexen that increases the character's armor class. Its appearance is that of a necklace with a leather strap and with a blue gem set in silver. The Fighter receives 1 point of armor, the Cleric receives 4, and the Mage receives 5. The item is first found in the Guardian of Ice.
In this context, "warding" refers to guarding, repelling, or a defensive enchantment. It comes from the Old English "weardian", which means to guard.
