Mercury Talisman


This medieval talisman evokes the power of Mercury, the messenger of the gods. The Roman god Mercury corresponds with the Greek messenger of the gods Hermes who is symbolized by the caduceus in the center of this charm. The staff has two wings at its upper end indicating the speed at which Hermes/Mercury travels and also displays the astrological symbol of planet Mercury at its top. Furthermore it shows two snakes entwining it in perfect symmetry and standing for healing powers and health. To the left and right side the alchemical signs for air and earth are shown, indicating that Mercury never touches ground with his feet but levitates from place to place. Just below these symbols the astrological signs for gemini and virgo are placed, which are both ruled by planet Mercury. Because of Mercury being considered extraordinary quick and mentally alert this talisman was worn in former times to increase one's own mental powers. The term talisman originates from the ancient Greek word teleo which means "to initiate" or "to magically charge".
This pendant is made of copper and brass with a framing made of pewter. 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. With the exception of gold copper is the only colored metal and just like silver and gold it is classified as a precious metal. The framing of this pendant is made of pewter, since pewter is a shiny, soft metal which is very malleable and has a good tarnish resistance.

About us Arrow, Mist (Page: Mercury Talisman) [136 x 22 px]
We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces 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.
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.
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
shows a unique combination of material and symbolism. This is the information about our website and this page if you want to point to it:
  • Website: Our short information is "Online Shop for Gems"
  • Page: Your mental powers are increased by this talisman of the gods' messenger Mercury.
We feel committed to the historical development of jewelry and are especially interested in the meaning of old symbols and pieces of jewelry - therefore we try to constantly extend our range of jewelry with pieces that are unique in their beauty and meaning. Naturally we select fascinating designs from all cultures and epochs, so that everybody can find the piece of jewelry that appeals to him.
