Found throughout human history, the Horned God has always represented the unknown and, usually, sexual energy. In the form of Baphomet this deity represents the life force of planet earth. Caricatured as "the devil" by Christians, this hunter's god may have been the earliest divinity worshipped by human beings. Baphomet is venerated by all types of Western magickal traditions:Ceremonial, Chaos, Thelemic, Left Hand Path and Wicca.

Very fancy Baphomets here, and I must say, he likes it! The version on the left is 14kt gold backed with argentium and the version on the right is the same but with a fancy bail and yellow diamond eyes! Man, those eyes did flash. Diamonds are expensive even at these small sizes so email us if you'd like a quote on different stones - say rubies or emeralds! It is also $75 less with a standard bail.

More Baphomet Jewelry
You can have godnames stamped and oxidized around the rim of the Extra Large Baphomet. In the image shown the names are Baphomet, Babalon, Luxferro, Azazel and Inana. More commonly the names are Baphomet, Lucifer, Set, Pan, Ahriman, and Leviathan. If the words fit, you can have an invocation to the Horned God stamped around the rim. On the right is a customized Baphomet. It has the letters NOX cut out and soldered to the top. You can customize Baphomet any way you like. Mark's personal Baphomet, for example, has a Tibetan skull at the top - which would cost a little more than this. Email us if you want a customized Baphomet or letters other than NOX.

Both of these Baphomets are variants on the style made famous by Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan, on which the Baphometic head is surrounded by the Hebrew letters for Leviathan. See a Leviathan ring HERE. These are the Church of Satan's version (well, our version of their version) of Baphomet. The customer who first requested this piece got permission from the COS for us to make it. These two are the same except that the letters are cut out on the right and soldered on top on the left. We can't cut them out any smaller than a large.

More COS Baphomets; the version on the left is a stylized one using our Baphomet and the spectacular version on the right is a COS Baphomet in 14kt Gold with ruby eyes and a fancy bail! Baphomet was quite happy about this version. The medium size of this version would have the letters soldered on top. He can be had without the fancy bail ($75 less) and with something other than AAA faceted ruby eyes if you just don't care enough to do the very best :) Email us!

In these designs The Horned One is within a rim composed of the world snake, the worm ouroboros. This is a spectacular design with deep engraved lines representing the snake's scales. The snake represents the cyclical nature of natural phenomena: birth-death-rebirth; time and the multiverse. On the right, Baphomet is surrounded by the Hebrew letters for Leviathan and then surrounded by the ouroboros.

This customer wanted a Baphpmet like the one above left - with some differences. He wanted twirly horns like a ram and he wanted the snake's head to be almost tortoise-like. He was very happy with his goat + snake. Email us for a variation of your very own.
This very large Baphomet was a one of a kind pendant, forged and created with a series of layers of sterling silver. It is a complex, three dimensional, sculptural piece. The center is a flaming tree, an element popularized by both Eliphas Levi and H. R. Geiger. This piece was about 2 1/3 inches in diameter and consisted of 5 layers. There was only ONE of this design and it was sold for $500.
Mark would be happy to make another custom Baphomet of this kind of complexity but it will not be the same as this.
Another custom Baphomet, this one after Eliphas Levi's design per request of the customer. He has AAA faceted sapphires in his eyes. This is an example of the custom Baphomets we can do - love to do actually! We can make one for you, but it will not be exactly like this. Email us why don't you?
A fabulous dog tag for a fabulous pup. You should be so lucky! Here is the beautiful and proud owner.
Here are three versions of our Baphomet as signet rings. These are large rings, the table where Baphomet is placed cannot be any smaller than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter because of the intricate face. Like all our rings, these signets are fabricated, not cast, so they very strong. Email us for more information.
This ring in argentium sterling silver costs $400.
This ring cost $700. We recently made one with the Baphomet and the circle in 18kt Gold and the ring in argentium. The cost of that ring was $900.
This Eliphas Levi Style Baphomet ring costs $425 and up - depending on the size. Until recently, Mark wasn't able to make teeny tiny flaming tree thingys like this but he has recently acquired a jeweler's microscope so now he can go really, really small!
"Love is the Law, Love under Will." These are some of the symbols of Aleister Crowley whose Order of Thelema continues his Great Work. 93! 93!
Star of Babalon Jewelry
This symbol was Aleister Crowley's personal symbol and is popular with Thelemites. The Star of Babalon invokes the aid of the angelic guardian spirits of the 7 planets. In this context it also means the Law of Thelema: 93.
Do What Thou Wilt!
Babalon—also known as The Scarlet Woman, The Great Mother or the Mother of Abominations — is a goddess found in Thelema. In her most abstract form, she represents the female sexual impulse and the liberated woman; although she can also be identified with Mother Earth in her most fertile sense. At the same time, Crowley believed that Babalon had an earthly aspect in the form of a spiritual office, which could be filled by actual women — usually as a counterpart to his own identification as 'To Mega Therion' (The Great Beast) — whose duty was then to help manifest the energies of the current Aeon of Horus.

"This is the Mystery of Babalon, the Mother of Abominations, and this is the mystery of her adulteries, for she hath yielded up herself to everything that liveth, and hath become a partaker in its mystery. And because she hath made her self the servant of each, therefore is she become the mistress of all. Not as yet canst thou comprehend her glory." - 12th Aethyr
"This is Babalon, the true mistress of The Beast; of Her, all his mistresses on lower planes are but avatars" Although Crowley often wrote that Babalon and the Scarlet Woman are one, there are many instances where the Scarlet Woman is seen more as a representative of the universal feminine principle. In a footnote to Liber Reguli, Crowley mentions that of the “Gods of the Aeon,” the Scarlet Woman and the Beast are their earthly emissaries. Though many women could be the "office holder" of the Scarlet Woman, there could be only one Beast - Crowley himself.

If the number of the Beast is 666 then the number of Babalon is 777. Her consort is Chaos, the "Father of Life" and the male form of the Creative Principle. Babalon is often described as being girt with a sword and riding the Beast. She is often referred to as a Sacred Whore, and her primary symbol is the Chalice or Graal. As Crowley wrote, “She rides astride the Beast; in her left hand she holds the reins, representing the passion which unites them. In her right she holds aloft the cup, the Holy Grail aflame with love and death. In this cup are mingled the elements of the sacrament of the Aeon” (Crowley 1981, p. 94).
This is a fabulous, layered, argentium sterling silver version of 777.
This ring features the personal sigil of Aleister Crowley. The letters BABALON are inset in the triangles fromed by the seven pointed star. This complicated signet ring costs $400 and up to fabricate.
Here is the 777 ring with 14kt yellow gold on argentium sterling silver. This ring costs $750 - depending on the size. The table of rings with this much raised lettring and emblems must be 1 inch (25mm) in diameter minimum.
This Star of Babalon ring is set with a large cabochon synthetic sapphire. This ring can be made somewhat smaller ring than the 777 rings above; it costs $350 and up.
The unicursal hexagram is so-called because it can be drawn unicursally - that is, in one continuous movement. This is significant when forming figures in ritual magick, where a continuous line is preferred to an interrupted movement. The symbol was devised by The Golden Dawn, and later adapted by Aleister Crowley as a device of personal significance.

Crowley's adaptation of the unicursal hexagram placed a five petalled rose, symbolizing a pentacle (and the divine feminine), in the center; the symbol as a whole making eleven (five petals of the rose plus six points of the hexagram), the number of divine union. Putting a ruby as a symbol of the rose in the center of the unicursal is most Crowleyan. We can even make one with a five petaled rose in the center AND a ruby on top of that if you like - see below! Prices, by the way, are for synthetic rubies or genuine garnets; the ones shown are faceted but you can have cabochon too. Genuine rubies are a bit more expensive. Email us re those prices.

Crowley's personal unicursal hexagram features a five petalled, inverted rose, at the center. The gorgeous piece on the right is a silver unicursal hexagram with a 14kt rose gold rose and a faceted, tube set rhodolite garnet. Majestic, it is! We can set a ruby (genuine or lab grown) also.

A totally interesting - who knows if it's true - interpretation of Anton LaVey's lightening bolt; Marilyn Manson's shock symbol; Ziggy Stardust's 'Z'; AC/DC, KISS and Black Sabbath's 'Zs' says that they are all 1/2 of a unicursal hexagram!

Unicursal Hexagram Rings
Another one of our fabulous hand crafted signet rings. This one has a unicursal hexagram within a circle and a Crowleyan rose in 14k rose gold on it. Rings like this cost $375 and up.
Here's a wide-band style ring, with a unicursal hexagram and a lab grown faceted ruby tube set in the center. Rings like this run $275 and up. This ring has the advantage of having very sharp points - if you like that sort of thing.
This 14kt yellow gold split band ring featuring a unicursal hexagram with a 14kt rose gold rose uses solder lamination techniques to back the hexagram with an argentium silver disk. Rings similar to this cost $500 and up, depending on ring size.
Here's another wide-band style ring, with a unicursal hexagram and a faceted garnet tube set in the center. In this case the unicursal is backed and oxidized and there are symbols on both sides. In this image you can see the inverted pentagram on the side.
In this image the symbol on the side is an Eye of Horus. Of course you can have most symbols placed on the sides. Rings like this cost $350 and up in argentium sterling silver.
For the well dressed Thelemite here's the unicursal hexagram as a pair of backed and oxidized cuff links. We can make pretty much any symbol you see on this page into cuff links. These cuff links are torpedo style, but we can also make them with a bar and chain. To see that or many more styles, look here.
This is a two sided custom piece ordered by a member of the Haitian Voudoo-Thelemite syncretic order La Couleuvre Noire. Thelemites and vouduns will know of this order through the work of Michael Bertiaux. More information on the history of this order is available here. Two sided pieces like this are extremely complicated to fabricate. This one was nearly two inches in width. Two sided pieces of similar size and complexity would cost $500 and up. Email Us with the design of your order's magickal seals. We'll be happy to turn them into something as gorgeous as this!
The hexagram is a mandala symbol called satkona yantra found on ancient South Indian Hindu temples built thousands of years ago. It symbolizes the nara-narayana, or perfect meditative state of balance achieved between Man and God.
As the Star of David, the hexagram is a generally recognized symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism. It is named after King David of ancient Israel; and its earliest known communal usage began in the Middle Ages.
In Ceremonial Magickal terms: Just as the Pentagram is an image of Man/God/Existence perfectly in balance Elementally, the Hexagram is a balanced symbol of the Planetary powers. It is important to understand that the planetary powers have nothing to do with the physical planets they are named after. They symbolize certain non-physical forces that affect our existence, much as the tide of the seas is guided by the moon. The Hexagram is also a symbol of balance between the Magnetic and Electric powers (also known as the Yin and Yang of the Tao, also corresponding to the Pillars of Mercy and Severity in Hermetic Magick). The upper triangle is colored Red, the Lower triangle Blue. With the Red symbolizing the Electric, Fire, the Male, etc. and the Blue symbolizing the Magnetic power, Water, the Female. Each point of the star is bejeweled with a planetary symbol, with Saturn being at the very top, followed in clockwise by Jupiter, Venus, Mercury, Luna, Mars, and Sol in the Center of the star. It is important during energy work, imho, to build the Hexagram into one's aura, as it represents balance in all of the celestial forces that affect our beings. It is even more important than the Pentagram to build into the aura, as the Elements are emanations of the Magnetic and Electric powers, and are under their "Presidency" for lack of a better term.

The hexagram is also used by the Christians as the Star of Creation. To Mormons it symbolizes the Tribes of Israel and the friendship and affinity Mormons feel towards the Jewish people. Rastafai and the Zion Christian Church, a 3 million Black Christian church in South Africa use this symbol. To Muslims, David and King Solomon are mentioned in the Koran as prophets and kings. Rael of the Raelians says the hexagram was brought to this planet by extrasolar genetic engineers! To Wiccans, it is '"as above, so below". One professor theorizes that the "Star of David" originated in the writings of Aristotle, who used superposed triangles in different positions to indicate the combinations of different basic elements.
So the hexagram is not only everywhere and forever but, as a simple geometric shape, like the triangle, circle, or square, the hexagram has been created by various, different peoples with no connection to one another over time.
Hexagram with Tetragrammaton Jewelry
In this variant the hexagram is backed with a textured disc of sterling silver and the tetragrammaton: Yod-Heh-Vahv-Heh, the secret name of God, is included in Hebrew. An amethyst is set in the center. The symbol can be made without the hebrew letters and without the stone - email us for prices and to buy.
Medium: $100 Code:304s(27X27mm or 1.1" diameter)
Large: $135 Code:305s(36X36mm or 1.4" diameter)
Here is the Hexagram/Tetragrammaton symbol set on a band style ring. This particular ring costs $300, but the price varies depending on the size and stone. See our rings section for more styles (picture your design on the style you like).
Quaternary means four elements in one and this quaternary is the tetragrammaton (Yod-Heh-Vahv-Heh = the secret/sacred name of God, the Word, the Logos, Christ) that is incarnated within the pentagram (the Kosmic Human is represented by the five points of the Hieroglyphic Esoteric Pentagram: one head, two arms and two legs). In Exodus 3:14-15 the name is associated with the idea of "being," and hence some have understood the original meaning to be "He who brings being into being."
The tetragrammaton on the right contains a large central moonstone and five elemental stones at the points of the pentagrams. This is a laminated piece, backed with sterling a silver textured disc. This symbol is generally considered to be the most powerful in Ceremonial Magick, containing the protective qualities of the pentagram, two circles signifying the microcosm and the macrocosm, and the name of the Creative Force. This is a heavy, impressive and powerful piece!
The tetragrammatons, when made as a small, will not have that inner circle - see the backed version below - too tiny! The backed tetragrammaton with stones, on the right, can be made in a small but with faceted stones only. You know the drill.
We can put a stone(s) on the tetragrammaton on the left; fewer stones on the tetragrammaton on the right; fancy bails on either - email us about that.

Astaroth is referred to in The Lesser Key of Solomon as a very powerful demon. In the Dictionnaire Infernal, Astaroth is depicted as a nude man with feathered wings, wearing a crown, holding a serpent in one hand, and riding a beast with dragon-like wings and a serpent-like tail. According to Sebastien Michaelis he is a demon of the First Hierarchy, who seduces by means of laziness, vanity, and rationalized philosophies. To others, he teaches mathematical sciences and handicrafts, can make men invisible and lead them to hidden treasures, and answers every question formulated to him. He was also said to give to mortal beings the power over serpents. Quite a guy, huh? Rings with demon seals start at $400.
John Dee, Elizabeth I's astrologer and court magician, designed this ring. Mark executed it as a size 10, heavy 14kt gold ring. The table of the ring, pictured here, is 1 inch square. This is a ceremonial ring, specially made for a customer involved in Dee's magick. On the right you can see the heavy gold band and the way in which Dee believed the ring should be fabricated. Elizabethan jewelry had not developed the signet style ring, which would be the way that a modern ring would fulfill Dee's design requirements. A ring similar to this would cost $2000 and up today. We can make the plate smaller which is considerably less expensive.
Note that we have John Dee's version of the Tetragrammaton in the form of a signet ring above.
Here is the John Dee Ring in argentium sterling silver with the enochian lettering and emblem in 14K yellow gold. Rings like this cost $425 and up with a 1" square table. Email us with questions.

Tarot Card Jewelry
According to a Tarot historian, Tarot cards did not come from playing cards nor playing cards from them. There are also those who believe that Tarot cards originated in Egypt. In some circles, they are thought to be the sole surviving "book" from the great fire that burned the libraries of ancient Egypt. In this theory, the cards are considered to be the hieroglyphical keys to life. There is, however, no evidence of this. They did appear in Italy around 1440 and were used to play games. It wasn't until the 18th century, in France and England, that followers of the occult discovered Tarot cards. They saw the symbolic pictures of the cards as having more meaning than the simple trump cards they were used for at the time. They used the cards as a divination tool, and occult writers wrote about "the Tarot." After this, the Tarot became a part of occult philosophy.
The pieces below depict the Hanged Man, the 12th trump card. It refers to the hanged god as a metaphor for death, renewal and self sacrifice. Aleister Crowley found this repugnant as it alludes to Christianity: "Pity not the fallen! I never knew them. I am not for them. I console not: I hate the consoled and the consoler." The Book of the Law.
We can make the trumps as cards or pendants and they can be all silver or all gold too.

Gnosticism probably predated Christianity and was nearly eradicated by the Catholic Church in the 13 Century but it survives to this day and was very influential in the development of esoteric and mystical movements in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries. We feature some of the most popular symbols of Gnosticism, but would be happy to make more. Email us!
The serpent or dragon eating its own tail can be traced back to ancient Egypt, circa 1600 BCE, though the pig dragons ( a type of ouroboros) of the Hongshan culture (47002200 BCE) of China are even older. From ancient Egypt the design passed to Phoenicia and then to the Greek philosophers, who gave it the name Ouroboros ("self-devourer"). It is also a well-known Gnostic symbol. The cosmic egg, which is protected by the worm (dragon/snake) is represented by whatever stone you love, here we used a hematite on the left hand worm, a turquoise on the right.
We can get quite a few stones to fit both of the smalls and the medium alternate worm but our choices really narrow for the medium regular worm and the large of both kinds. You might want to Email us first.

The Ouroboros is a greek word, and means "tail swallower." The ouroboros is usually depicted in the form of a snake swallowing its tail, and is usually circular, although it is sometimes depicted in a lemniscate shape - the infinity symbol - where it symbolizes the balancing of the upper and the lower (as above so below). The religious or spiritual aspect of the leminscate worm predates its mathematical origins. It has been found in Tibetan rock carvings. In the tarot, the lemniscate represents the balance of forces and is often associated with the magician card.

This customer wanted a large ring with a large stone but he didn't want the bulk of a signet ring, so Mark crafted a heavy duty band ring for him. Prices start at $325 and go up depending on size and stone.
Chnoubis (Xnoubis, Chnoumis, Chnuphis) is an Egyptian Gnostic solar icon, found most often on gnostic gems, and amulets for protection against poison and disease. He is a composite figure with the head of a lion and the body of a serpent, usually with seven rays emanating from the head, sometimes, with the twelve zodiacal signs. Chnoubis is an aspect of the Gnostic Demiurge, Yaldabaoth, and is associated with Abraxas. Images of Chnoubis are most often found inscribed on gnostic gems, small talismans made from semi-precious stone, that date from the first century onward.
This particular style of Chonubis was first made as an XXL (Extra Extra Large: $325,
68X58mm or 2.7"X2.3"). These smaller versions might have a bit less engraving. Want that super duper size? Email us.
Chnoubis is an aspect of the Gnostic Demiurge, Yaldabaoth, and is associated with Abraxas. We made a pair of these for a couple of esoteric practitioners and we made each ring twice. Why did we make them twice? Because we put the Hebrew letters that are between the rays on backwards and the rings were so many layers by this time (hand-made not cast) that they just flew apart when Mark tried to re-solder the letters. Incredibly complex rings like this start at $450.
Moses was commanded by the God of the Israelites to raise a serpent upon a staff after he prayed that his people be healed from attacks by venemous snakes. Later Christians saw the story as a prophecy of the Crucifixion. In Gnosticism the symbolism is similar to that of the Cathar Cross, which may be derived from it, in which salvation comes from transcending the serpent of Time and Bodily Manifestation.
Abraxas is the name given by the early Gnostic Christians to the embodied form of God. In Gnosticism, God is called the 'Pleroma', which means fullness. Pleroma would correspond with Brahman in Hinduism, Ein Sof in Jewish Kabbalah and the Tao of Taoism etc. This is God as the unknowable; the God beyond concept and imagining. This is the God that is the source of all being and the ground of all existence.
This fabulous jewel was commissioned by one of our customers in Greece. There are many variations of the rooster headed Gnostic God. Email us with your request. We can make this larger but no smaller and of course we can make this in silver.
Here is a different Abraxas on a signet ring. You can also have the Greek letters as in the pendant above or, if you prefer, the name Abraxas in Greek around the signet. Email us with your customization. Rings like this run $350 or thereabouts.
The Cathar Cross, the symbol of Catharism (the form of Gnosticism mercilessly persecuted by the Medieval Catholic Church) features a leminiscule, or figure 8 on its side, symbolizing infinity as a snake eating its own tail. This sideways figure 8 is also known as the Worm Ouroborous and references Leviathan. Surging out from that is a double cross symbolizing the earth and the heavens. This cross is also a variant on the World Tree. The symbol is exactly the same as the Brimstone symbol in Alchemy and was adopted by Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan.

or Kabbala(h), Cabala, or, if you're in a hurry, QBL
The Western Esoteric (or Hermetic) Tradition, a precursor to both the neo-Pagan and New Age movements, differs from the Jewish Kabalah in being a more syncretistic system. Hermetic Kabbalah reached its peak in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a 19th-century organization that was the pinnacle of ceremonial magick. Within the Golden Dawn, Kabbalistic principles such as the ten Sephiroth were fused with Greek and Egyptian deities, the Enochian system of angelic magick of John Dee, and certain Eastern (particularly Hindu and Buddhist) concepts within the structure of a Masonic - or Rosicrucian - style esoteric order. Crowley's "Liber 777." is a set of tables relating various parts of ceremonial magick and Eastern and Western religion to thirty-two numbers representing the ten spheres and twenty-two paths of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. The syncretism embraced by Hermetic Kabbalists is evident, as one may simply check the table to see that Chesed (for example)"Mercy," corresponds to Jupiter, Isis, the color blue (on the Queen Scale), Poseidon, Brahma, and amethysts.
The Jewish Kabbalah is an interpretation key of the "soul" of the Torah, or the religious-mystical system of Judaism claiming an insight into divine nature. The term "Kabbalah" was originally used in Talmudic texts, among the Geonim, and by early Rishonim as a reference to the full body of publicly available Jewish teaching. Over time it became a reference to doctrines of esoteric knowledge concerning God, God's creation of the universe and the laws of nature, and the path by which adult religious Jews can learn these secrets. Kabbalah, according to the more recent use of the word, stresses the esoteric reasons and understanding of the commandments in the Torah, and the occult cause of events described in the Torah. Kabbalah includes the understanding of the spiritual spheres of creation, and the ways by which God administers the existence of the universe.

Wicca utilizes a number of symbols that we feature on the Pentagram page and the goddess symbols are on the Egyptian page because they started in pre-dynastic Egypt. Here are a few more Wiccan symbols.
The moon symbolizes the cyclic, mysterious, feminine and tidal forces of the goddess. The cross subscript stands for the earth and again for the female. The symbol as a whole represents the power of the goddess in her aspects as Gaia and Luna. The female with pentagram was dreamed by Pam and the moon/female was dreamed by a friend of hers! It can be made smaller or larger then we show. A pair of moon/females make great dangle earrings and would be twice the price of the pendant. - email for info about earrings. Or for an Extra Large!

In many traditions of Wicca, as well as some other Pagan religions, one's studies are marked by Degrees. A Degree shows that the student has spent time learning, studying and practicing. It's a common misconception that attaining a degree is an end goal, but in fact most HPS will tell their initiates that being granted a Degree is just the beginning of a new and empowering process.
Below are the degree symbols that we've made. The First Degree pendant is a two part piece with the pentagram soldered on top of the inverted triangle. The Second Degree is sometimes an inverted or point up pentagram in circle - see those HERE and HERE.
If your degree system symbols are different from these, don't hesitate to ask for them! We're happy to make whatever you need or want.

In initiatory Wiccan, that is witchcraft in a recognized coven, the Third Degree is the highest degree and usually involves an initiation through the Great Rite. This symbol is used by Wiccans who have achieved that level of understanding.
This symbol represents the triune nature of the goddess. Here she is the waning, waxing and full moon at the center (which is represented by a moonstone). She is a symbol of female, magickal energy. Other stones can be used of course. The dark side of the goddess can be portrayed with hematite or black onyx, as the creator side can be with garnet or ruby. This is one of our favorite pieces for its power and anonymity - that is you can wear it and not be outed for being a witch, or worse....a feminist! Moonstones are expensive in large sizes and this piece takes large stones. If you wanted an onyx or a garnet or yet another stone the price would be less. Email us for those prices.

The triple goddess also appears as the three goddesses of fate. In Greek Mythology they are the Moirae; in Norse mythology they are the Norns. The Weird Sisters of Shakespeare's Macbeth and the Wyrd Sisters of Terry Pratchett's novels are most definitely inspired by these deities. (In Pratchett's work, they are referred to as "the maiden, the mother, and... the other one, as everyone is quite afraid of calling Granny Weatherwax a 'crone'.")

This is a particularly Wiccan version of the triple goddess, putting the protection and unification sigil - the pentagram - in the center where the full moon is.
This symbol is more about the goddess energy of Hecate and her ilk, who are the offspring of the female spirit of primal darkness at the creation. The Three Furies, who have crescents on their heads and represent the tough side (to say the least!) of the goddess, are older than all the gods. Like the Wyrd Sisters they are the past, present and future. They are the most ancient, unknowable, and powerful goddess energy there is. Part of The Prayer to Selene:
To You, wherefore they call You Hekate,
Many-named, Mene, cleaving Air just like
Dart-shooter Artemis, Persephone,
Shooter of Deer, night shining, triple-sounding,
Triple-headed, triple-voiced Selene
Triple-pointed, triple-faced, triple-necked,
And Goddess of the Triple Ways, who hold
Untiring Flaming Fire in Triple Baskets,
And You who oft frequent the Triple Way
And rule the Triple Decades,
This symbol comes with a chain attached. In silver we chose 16" 2.0 mm bead for the small; 18" 2.0 mm bead for the medium and 18" 2.5 mm bead chain for the large.

This refers to the many threes on this planet - the three sides of the goddess; the three fold nature of gods, goddesses, and humans: body, mind, and spirit; love, power, wisdom; and for Christians, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is also John Bonham's (of Led Zeppelin) symbol. For what it meant to him click here.
We made this ring for a fan of John Bonham but is also a symbol of the goddess and her threefold nature, as you know. Hand-made argentium signet rings like this with a simple symbol and no rim start at $300. Email us if you'd like to have one or any other goddess symbol on a ring.
Hekate is associated with a curious wheel shaped design, known as Hekate's Wheel, or the "Strophalos of Hekate". It is a circle which encloses a serpentine maze with three main flanges, that in turn are situated around a central, fiery spiral. The symbolism refers to the serpent's power of rebirth; to the labyrinth of knowledge through which Hekate could lead humankind, and to the flame of life itself: "The life-producing bosom of Hekate, that Living Flame which clothes itself in Matter to manifest Existence" (according to Isaac Preston Cory's 1836 translation of the Chaldean Oracles). The three main arms of the maze correspond with her being a triple goddess, as well as goddess of the three ways, and that she has dominion over the earth, sea, and sky.
The version on the right will have a standard perpindicular fixed jump ring; this one was made for a key ring.
