Sir Gawain's Escutcheon Pentagram
Magic Pentagrams and their Meanings:
The pentagram is one of the key symbols in western magic tradition - the five points of its star are standing for the five elements of fire, water, earth, air and spirit. Magicians and witches are writing this symbol into the air within their ritual circle in order to be able to use its elemental powers and also the practitioners of high magic are using pentagrams to protect them from negative energies and to keep these banned.
The Pendant Sir Gawain's Escutcheon Pentagram:
This heraldic pentagram is believed to have been worn by Sir Gawain, a famous knight from King Arthur's round table, in his escutcheon. It is surrounded by the Latin names of the five elements of fire, water, earth, air and spirit and set with a blood red jewel in its center. Worn as an amulet Sir Gawain's Escutcheon Pentagram is said to grant stability and inner harmony to its wearer.
Example of a Charging Ritual from an old Grimoire:
It is helpful if you carry the symbol close to your body for some time in order to get familiar with the magic powers of its pentagram before you start this charging ritual.
2. Preparatio (Preparation):
Place a table with a white tablecloth in the center of a room - furthermore you need incense cones or joss sticks, a white candle, a candle holder, a glass of water and a dash of salt.
Pay attention that you will not be disturbed and darken the room: The glass of water, the white candle and the incense are placed in the middle of the table. Ignite the candle and the incense and put the symbol close to them. Close your eyes and for a few minutes think about the symbolic meaning of the sign - you should imagine its effects as strongly as possible.
3. Purificatio (Cleaning):
Put a dash of salt into the glass of water and imagine how a gold-coloured light dissipates from the salt and into the water. Pour some of the water on the sign and imagine, how the pendant is glowing in a golden light - this way the symbol is purified by the element of water. Then hold the symbol into the smoke of the incense and purify it by the element of air in this way. Furthermore move it above the flame of the candle in order to purify it by the element of fire, and finally sprinkle some salt on it in order to purify it by the element of earth.
4. Potestatem Facere (Charging):
Close you eyes, take the symbol into your hand and imagine, how a sphere of brilliant white light is hovering above you - feel the power and the size of the sphere. Imagine with your inner eye a golden beam of light which comes out of the sphere, flows through your head and into your solar plexus and this way strengthens and warms you with a golden light. Again think about the symbolic meaning of the sign - then let gold-coloured light flow through your arm and your hand into the symbol.
5. Salvatio (Reorientation):
Take a meal and have a drink to lead your body back and to relax a bit. The symbol stays charged as long as you wear it within your aura.
6. Exoneratio (Discharging):
This ritual has filled the symbol with powerful energies and it will therefore cause special changes in your life. If these changes are undesirably strong you can discharge the pentagram by imagining how the energy leaves the symbol and by simultaneously holding it under running water for a few minutes.

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.
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
Also the piece of jewelry on this page http://www.aval
