The Ouroboros Meaning and use in Jewelry Design

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 image is the ancient symbol Ouroboros, from the Greek word “Oura” meaning “tail” and “bόros” meaning “eating.”

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.

The Ouroboros symbol frequently used in Alchemical illustrations as symbols of nature’s circularity. Ouroborus images have been found in ancient Egypt, India, Greece, Japan, Native Americans, Europe, and even in China. The symbol can also be found in the form a biblical serpent representing the serpent from Garden of Eden.

Plato used this symbol to describe the first living thing in the universe. He chose that symbol because in the beginning there was nothing, so the living thing consumed and became itself. The concept was of a self-sufficient being.

Using 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 Ouroboros symbol when fashioned into jewelry enables the wearer to draw inspiration from it on a more personal level.

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
A 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.

The Divination Pendant
The Divination Pendant is David’s encapsulation of one of humanity’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 more in-depth understanding of the concept of time and the ability for divination.
