If you’ve been following Magick Symbols on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+, you’ve probably seen some posts about spell jewelry and Jewelry Spells. Most Witches have enchanted crystals and jewelry with intent spells, and some Witches hand-make talismans. But did you know a piece of jewelry can be used in spell-casting? From form to function, jewelry can be powerful enhancers of magical intent.
The most apparent explanation is the symbolism in a piece of jewelry. Does it speak to your intent? Celtic Knotwork is often traced to different bind spells (depending on which type of knot is used), while runes and sigils invoke deities to assist you in your spellwork.
More than symbolism, what your jewelry is made of can make a difference for jewelry spells. We all know crystals and gemstones augment magick. Homemade amulets carry a certain mystique, especially if you wear them openly. However, even when charging a piece of jewelry, some metals amplify your intent better than others. Silver is considered feminine and is (paradoxically) the most conductive and reflective metal on earth. Prized for its beauty and many uses, silver ranks second only to gold, which represents compassion, wealth, and masculinity, on top of its historical, aesthetic, and industrial significance. For these reasons, silver and gold channel your magic with the most clarity.
Aside from symbols and materials, many jewelry spells have actual functions. We’ve mentioned Poison Rings and Bottle Pendants a few times, but these treasures can actually be used to hold essential oils and herbs for aromatherapy and pomander spells, tiny stones, or any other charged magical item you can fit inside, to take with you. Pendulum Pendants can be worn around your neck until you need to channel answers from spirits and your subconscious. Laurie Cabot designed two such pendants (with Green Manpictured right, and Goddess imagery) that allow you to store conical pendulum stones or spells.
A lot goes into the creation of jewelry spells, whether you make them yourself or follow ancient traditions and wisdom kept alive by Witches like Laurie Cabot. You can find her collection (in-stock!) HERE.

Halloween is drawing ever-closer as the weather cools down, and the leaves begin to change. Witches celebrate nature’s eternal transition with magic and spellwork, but duplicating spells and rituals can be difficult without a Book of Shadows (BoS, as many abbreviate it) or grimoire to record everything.
This book is considered sacred, though its contents vary across different paths. To some, it is a guide to live by. Others create their own in special journals. It can contain spells, drawings, divination, or even pressed flowers and leaves to be used in spellwork.
Some witches write in coded languages like Theban or other languages to keep their Books of Shadows safe from prying eyes, while others publish theirs in hopes that others will find it useful.
If you haven’t begun your Book of Shadows, MagickSymbols offers a selection of blank books embossed with elegant designs, as well as detailed, handcrafted, sterling silver bookmarks to hold your page. Find yours today and start recording your magical findings!
More than talismans or pentacles worn during spellwork, ritual jewelry is symbolic and can be as varied as Pagan paths themselves. They can can be cast in specific designs, metals, and stones to promote certain ideals, or they can be personal objects that hold special energies.
Some ritual jewelry has a purpose, like aromatic magic, poison-rings, and potion bottles. Others help invoke a particular deity or represent an outcome you are seeking. They can also remind you to stay focused on your goals.
Many people wear ritual talismans daily to absorb its power at all times, while other pieces are only worn during rituals to keep it untainted by negative or mundane energy. Regularly-worn symbolic jewelry should be consecrated often to maintain its purity and efficacy.
How do you use your ritual jewelry?
Precious metal and gemstones have been honored since ancient times for their beauty, practical and magical qualities. How you incorporate your magic into your jewelry (and your jewelry into your magic) can be as unique as your form of spirituality and/or witchcraft!
