Ancient alchemy symbol that
symbolizes the equality of the internal and external
in the alchemist's soul.
Ouroboros Symbol Meaning
Have you ever seen this curious image of a snake or a dragon coiled upon itself
with its tail in its mouth, in effect forming a ring or a circle? The earliest
known appearance of this image was in Egypt in the year 1600 BC. From there
it eventually got passed on to Greece. This is the ancient symbol Ouroboros,
from the Greek word “oura” meaning “tail” and “bόros”
Across ancient cultures, the ouroboros has come to symbolize many different
things, yet they all somehow point to the same fundamental truths. It depicts
the cyclic nature of the universe, how the end is also the beginning, the eternal
cycle of death and renewal, how light gives way to dark and how dark eventually
gives birth to light, over and over.
As ancient as it is, the ouroboros symbol has transcended the test of time itself.
It has been used globally to represent many social organizations over the years.
It is a popular central ideology in books and film. It has even been used quite
extensively as the inspiration for many board and computer games.
The ouroboros symbol when fashioned into jewelry enables the wearer to draw
inspiration from it on a more personal level. There are many variations to the
design itself and although choosing the right piece for you may not be as simple,
the most compelling reason for your choice is still the deeper meaning the symbol
holds in your life.
The Ouroboros in Jewelry
Each Ouroboros piece is the result of extensive knowledge and intimate
understanding of ancient symbols and their significance in our lives.
The Dragon Pendant
This pendant’s clever use of the ouroboros to form the Gordian Knot makes
for a solid symbol of unity that seeks for the wearer oneness with all that
surrounds him or her.
The Infinity Dragon
Another special piece made from the union of not two but three symbols, namely
the ouroboros, the mobius loop and the infinity symbol. The ouroboros represents
how the end is one with the beginning. The mobius loop depicts how there is
no difference between the inside and the outside. The infinity symbol represents
eternity. Together, these three symbols can very well be the ultimate symbol
for infinite unity with the universe. It is one truly distinctive and thoughtful
gift anyone would be thrilled to get.
The Divination Pendant
The Divination Pendant is David’s encapsulation of one of mankind’s
greatest desires, to be able to see into the future. The lizard sheds its skin
and regrows its tail. It is seen as the ability for constant renewal. Engraved
on the upper part of the pendant, “Behold the Glory of the First Cause”,
relates to the very moment of the creation of the universe, the same moment
in time that holds within it all the future events, including us and everything
we know. The pendant thus seeks to endow its wearer with a complete and deeper
understanding of the concept of time and the ability for divination.
The Ouroboros Earrings
Depicted by itself, here the symbol represents the eternal changing of the universe,
which we experience as time. The earrings are meant to bring the wearer a clearer
sense of her oneness with the environment in which she finds herself.
The Ouroboros Ring
It being one of his favorite symbols, his version is uniquely intricate. It
represents the courage to face and accept life’s challenges and to evolve
with them. The ring is intended to empower the wearer to roll with the times
and to constantly recreate oneself.
