The Banner Saga contains 12 different items of rank 5.

Four of them can only randomly found at markets, Statue of a Sightless Man - Obsidian Bell - Namej's Ring - Björg av Leander, and they cost 20 renown each.

The rest can be gotten in different situations in the game.

In chapter 3, when you reach the Denglr godstone you have to choose, when promted, first to "gather whatever you can", followed by "take the necklace for yourself" to get the Five Ring Necklace.

In chapter 4, if you sided with Onef, raid the storehouse with him to get the Shepersky Stone.
If you decided to stay outside the walls of the town at the end of chapter 2, you've now the chance to fight three optional fights, if you fight and win all three you will get Calabilla.
When you rech the Marek godstone in chapter 4, you've the opportunity to let your people gather scales, if you let them gather all scales you'll lose some time but will receive the Godscale.

In chapter 6, later on Krumr wants to go back to fight the dredge following you, if you allow him to go, he will take some man with him and returns a few days later, with Dundr's Hand.
Also in chapter 6, you'll meet Sigbjorn, when you talk to him shortly afterwards, he'll make you an offer about mead, accept it and don't talk about it, you'll receive Bjorulf's Blessing

In chapter 7 you have to look for supplies in Boersgard, and you will get some hints of the possible location of an artifact, if you look another day for supplies, you'll have a chance to go get it and keep it, the Ash Mead.
When you visit the last godstone in the game (Strahv) in chapter 7, choose to climb higher and look for another piece, when you return to town, you'll get Strahv's Whetstone.

There is plenty of room to get five in one playthrough. I would suggest the following:
- Five Ring Necklace
- Either Calabilla or Shepersky Stone, depending on how you've ended chapter 2
- Dundr's Hand
- Bjorulf's Blessing
- Strahv's Whetstone

Any combination of five will net you the achievement, but I can't recommend to buy one from a market as the renown is better used to buy supplies and upgrading your heroes, also gathering the scales for the Godscale and looking for supplies to get the Ash Mead, will make you lose some days, which can be bad depending on the moral/supplies situation of your caravan. You also can't get Calabilla and Shepersky Stone, as I stated before, its depending on how you've ended chapter 2. The achievement will pop when you get your fifth rank 5 item.
