Hand of Fortune

Pendant

According to old belief amulets and talismans are tools to trigger changes in life. In order to achieve this talismans transfer positive powers while amulets grant protection by absorbing negative energies. Old grimoires contain instructions on how to build amulets and talismans in a way so that they can use positive planetary energies to fulfil their purpose.
The biblical king Solomon established the Jewish secret doctrine of Kabbalah and wrote the magic book "Key of Solomon" 3000 years ago - also this talisman is built according to these magic instructions. The wisdom of Solomon until today is the foundation of all western magic.
The palmistry or chiromancy has a long tradition and was popular in medieval times because of the following biblical text in the book Job " He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work." (Job 37:7). Because of this saying it was concluded that God has encrypted the fate of every man in his hand so that it can be read out of it. The Hand of Fortune is a medieval diagram showing which part of the hand according to old belief corresponds to which planetary energy. The lunar part of the hand therefore shows the palmist how creative and intuitive a person is. The part belonging to Venus stands for the physical aspects of a person and how harmonious these work together. The part of the hand belonging to Mars symbolizes the energy of a person while the part belonging to Jupiter reveals our goals in life. Saturn and its part of the hand stand for wisdom, that one can learn in life. The part of the hand belonging to the Sun reflects our soul and finally the part belonging to Mercury stands for our communicative skills. In the magic doctrine Kabbalah palmistry was used to find out more about the fate of a person and the Hand of Fortune was worn as a talisman to attract lucky occurrences, good chances and luck in general.
Among other things medieval knights of the 16th century carried this magic talisman as a fortune charm on their belts. It was popular because according to old belief it was not necessary to charge these kabbalalistic pendants - the correct choice of symbols and materials was everything needed for the talisman to work. The knights therefore used this pendant not only as jewelry but also as an aid to achieve changes in their lives.
 
This pendant is made of brass and copper. With the exception of gold copper is the only colored metal and just like silver and gold it is classified as a precious metal. Due to its softness and malleableness copper is particularly suitable for the jewelry production. The brass, a copper zinc alloy, is responsible for the yellow golden parts of this piece of jewelry and the copper for the red golden ones.

About us

AvalonsTreasury.com: Arrow, Mist (Page: Hand of Fortune) [136 x 22 px]
A main focus of our jewelry collections are magic symbols which are made according to historical artwork. Although a lot of people (like us) appreciate the beauty of the different designs and used materials, only few think about the deeper symbolism of these pieces of jewelry. In our modern world we see so a many different beautiful and decorative items that we usually only enjoy their beauty without considering the deeper meaning or the origin of the used motives and without knowing for what reason these items were formerly used. In our online shop we want to give answers to these questions by offering accurate background knowledge and additional information about every piece of jewelry in our collection.
 
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
 
Since jewelry is such a diverse cultural asset the meaning of a given piece can depend on the point of view and beliefs of its creator. For example many cultures developed pieces of jewelry showing to others whether its wearer is married or single: In our Western world these are the wedding rings while in African countries e.g. special bracelets or necklaces are worn for this purpose. Whether we are talking about weddings jewelry or talismans and amulets that were used for protection - often the decorations and materials determine the symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry.
 
Besides the various symbols and designs different cultures use for their pieces of jewelry also a variety of materials are deployed in jewelry production. At the beginning of mankind primarily pearls made of wood and bones and shells were crafted to pendants, since these rather soft materials could easily be processed and were readily available. Later on especially precious metals like gold and silver and various gems were used for valuable jewelry. Today the selection of materials available for the production of jewelry is especially large and various.
