When you wear a pentacle ring, do you wear it point up, for you to see or point up for others to see?

For me to see.

Unfortunately I don't have any specific places I could tell you to go...not counting transit time I got to spend a day in Scotland. What I can tell you is to not focus on "pagan" shops...if you have time just look everywhere you see jewlery and watch for something that really cries out to you as being that element. Go to little gift stores and import stores...many will have unusual pieces (and often you can find something at a reasonable price.)



Good luck

I don't see why it should be in any way "wrong" for a person to wear their pentagram, or whatever symbol they want to wear, for others to see. It sounds very honourable to be simply wearing it "for yourself", but if it's jewellery, then it is for others to see aswell. As well as all of its metaphorical symbolism, the pentagram represents the human and to me that means one head up and two legs down; it just looks odd otherwise, Satanist connexions or not.



I wear a pentagram ring which is quite small and very simple. I wear it because it is discreet and never draws comments, but is there nevertheless and I think the pentagram within the circle is a very beautiful symbol; geometrically perfect but also evocative. There ARE times when I would perhaps like to advertise my spiritual path and beliefs, but I always ask myself why I want to tell the world these things, and I have not yet come up with a good enough reason, so I don't wear "I AM A PAGAN" Tshirts or anything. I WOULD, however, like to find some smart clothes with a little Green Man motif, but the only ones I've found so far have been pretty ropey Tshirts at Avebury stone circle.

i have a cuff bracelet with a fairly big pentagram on it, and a chain from the bracelet to a ring with a small pentagram on it.



I want to wear it to work but am not sure of what type of attention I would get, if any at all....

Any kind of attention is better than none. But if people at your work are cool they'll probably complement you on the cool piece of jewelry you got.

Kiril -- people i work with here in the bible belt of kentucky are not cool with me being pagan. Altho some of them wouldn't know what it meant but im sure a pentagram is thought to be evil and all churches tell their members that. *sigh*

Oh... Luckily never lived near or had to deal with people who weren't open minded because of their religion, so i wouldn't want to be in any belt :-) But i guess you have your reasons...

Kiril--



Yeah well i moved out here when i was poor. I was living with my parents but they kicked my boyfriend out and we had no place else to go so we came out here to live with his parents. I wouldn't give Firelord up so I guess i came out here for love.



But its turned out to be great because its really green and pretty here and i have a house, my car, Firelord, and a really great paying job. Its just the people suck..

Okay, his thread has confused me a little.

I don't own a pentagram ring yet but I'm looking for one.

What really is the proper way to wear it? Does anyone have a picture of how it should look?



Thanks!!!

Kindal like a pentagram... Well it can be anything really, as long as it means something to you, imo.

Pentacle ring: a ring with a pentacle design on it.



Proper way to wear it: as far as I know, personal choice. Some people have problems with inverted pentacles, and the question is which that would be on a ring...inverted from the perspective of the wearer or the observer.

Inverted means upside down with two points up and one point directed down. I hope that helps.



Its a matter of personal choice but because of the media, etc a lot of ppl would mistake the upside down pentagram for a satanist symbol but then again, its a great way to educate people about what is and is not correct in their little heads. :)

I bought a pentagram ring on the weekend :-D

I also bought a hemp necklace with the Ankh symbol. It's nice but the hemp itches my neck.

I was looking through this magazine..not really a Pagan one..It was a catalong for all of these cool things and they had Witchcraft books and Pentacle rings necklacese etc. so I was like inlove with the book! ^.^



Sad thing is...Most of the kids in my school make fun of me...I just resently found out that this Girl who I have been realllly close with talked about me and said that I did BLACK MAGICK! To alll of her other friends...including Cineilea...that was when Cin didnt really hang with me for a while...then she realized that this girl was a very big hypacrite. we then found out that that she was doing mean things behind cins back..so were not her friends but she has been talking to me..and it is soooo annoying! I just wanna say..I DONT WANNA BE YOUR FRIEND SO BACK OFF! But thats sorta mean...
