The "Testament of Solomon" an ancient manuscript
or grimoire, purportedly written by King Solomon. Within the
text Solomon mostly describes particular demons whom he enslaved
to help build the temple. However, When a demon named Ornias
harasses a young lad, who Solomon favors, by stealing his
pay and sucking out his vitality through the lad's thumb,
Solomon petitions for help in stopping this situation. His
petitions answered by the Archangel Michael who gives Solomon
a ring with a seal on it that enables him to command the demons.
In some reviews of this work Solomon's ring is often referred
to as the Seal of Solomon, which is not actually a ring but
a design upon the ring.
Some versions of the "Testament of Solomon" indicate
that the actual ring was made of brass and iron, carved
with the Name of God, and set with four jewels. In other
versions, which tend to be the later versions, the ring
simply bore the symbol of the Seal of Solomon, which we
now refer to as the Star of David.
The idea that something as insignificant as a ring can
be a powerful magical charm has been used since the times
of ancient magicians, Solomon. Egyptians believed in the
power of magical rings to heal and bring good fortune, and
Europeans as early as A.D. 800 made use of them in bestowing
The construction and use of a magical ring is no more difficult
than the making of a specific talisman or amulet, providing
that you start with a blank, unadorned band, on which you
can have a design engraved. Once the ring is constructed,
consecrated and dedicated it will hold its magically charged
intention long after its initial dedication.
The form of the ring consists of materials and inscriptions
suitable for use as a link to the power which the ring confers,
incorporating within the design specific celestial or magical
correspondences.Thus it then remains for the magician the
ability to magician to invoke the desired forces.
It appears then that magical rings are therefore worth the
large amount of effort used in their construction. The ring,
once constructed can then perform things all by itself or
empower the holder to be able to perform specific effects.
Therefore rings may be empowered a magician, a celestial
power or even by God Himself.
The Seal of Solomon, is known in some texts as the Ring
of Aandaleeb. Its power is therefore highly sought or reproduced
and many magician of the past have tried to attain its power
in one form or another.
Therefore the use of magical rings is quite common within
the traditions of Judaism, Christianity and to Islam.
One of the most influential texts used by many magicians
in the past has been the "Black Pullet" a grimoire
that purports to teach the production of magical talismans
and rings. The Grimoire details the design of 20 rings and
Within the tradition of the Magic of the Angels of Men
or the Pauline Art, there is a belief that once you have
established a firm and lasting contact with your Holy Guardian
Angels, each will reveal a design to you which you should
have incorporated within a ring. This design (or sigil),
its meaning or origin must never be revealed to anyone,
it is a magical contract between you and your Teaching Angels,
which may be use as an amulet of protection, and a means
of contacting your angels to gain their help and assistance
in times or need.
