This Months Birthstone

October Birthstone Opal

The word “Talisman,” is said to be derived from the Greek “teleo,” meaning primarily, to accomplish, or bring into effect. A Talisman is often an object marked with signs and symbols that is believed to the bearer to have certain powers.

Talismans, Charms, Amulets and most other sacred jewelry items all fall under the heading of “Talisman Jewelry” as a whole. There are a wide variety and reasons as to what makes a piece of jewelry a Talisman for someone. It may be that it is their Zodiac Sign, or an earthly element that calls to them, perhaps is something that has a sacred meaning, or simply an object one holds dear?  All of the items below good examples of Talisman Jewelry. Shimmerlings has many items that people consider their own personal Talisman, but we do not currently create specific symbols to imbue as a Talisman object. We believe that your treasure will find you; and when it does it then becomes your talisman.

Below is simply a chart on different types of talisman jewelry, it is by not means all inclusive, simply an illustration of how many different types of talismans there are.

With different aspects of one’s life being important, or perhaps simply an indelible event, a talisman is created when the bearer makes it so.  One may purchase a token, totem or talisman that appeals to them, but it is in the wearing, bearing, carrying that makes it a true talisman. It will resonate, vibrate and become imbued with importance … perhaps even without perception.

What is your talisman?

One thought on “Talisman Jewelry

    The way Shimmerlings puts together colors is wonderful, the magic of the stones and the beautiful, beautiful colors! I purchased a bracelet that simply called to me as soon as I laid eyes on it. I put it on and only take it off on vary rare occasions. I was not looking for a Talisman, but this bracelet became mine…I feel very powerful with it in my possession.
