Hecate. Sterling Silver & Onyx Persephone ring.

$200.00


Considered one of the ancient goddess, and in some tales, the only Titan allowed to retain her authority after the Olympians seized control, Hecate is a triple faced goddess associated with witchcraft, the Underworld and its subsequent entities such as the dead and ghosts as well as being known for her maternal instincts and her ability to accept the strange nature of people. 

Known also as a Moon goddess, Hecate was said to be Persephone's consort during her seasonal time in the Underworld. Her ease in the Underworld has also made her the goddess of liminal spaces such as crossroads and different spiritual planes. As a guardian she is often called upon for protection, especially over women.

Here, Hecate is represented in her Crone form, or waning, dark moon form by way of a stunning emerald cut Onyx.

This ring is also a nod to Victorian Mourning jewelry (often made of jet or black glass, which has a similar appearance to Onyx). After the death of Prince Albert, Queen Elizabeth fell into a deep grief that was shared by the nation. This led to mourning rituals being instilled in society, which had many intricate rules such as exclusively wearing black for set periods of time, wearing the hair of your beloved in lockets and rings, taking portraits of the deceased as well as other rituals that were thought to be comforting.

Onyx is best known for being a natural stone that acts as a kind of 'psychic armor' against the negativity of others. It is also used to sooth grief and heartbreak. It is a wonderful grounding stone and a stone of self mastery, enabling its wearers to have mental and spiritual focus. 

Forged from an antique setting seen in my popular Persephone ring entirely in sterling silver, it is then given a dark gloomy gray patina that is then highlighted to reveal the silver highlights beneath.
