Amulets for Protection:
The eye is a popular and ancient motif in jewelry used to ward off evil. Many cultures around the world have adapted the all-seeing eye for the purpose of protection. The symbol of the heart in jewelry was adapted in the 17th and 18th centuries as armor against devilry. "Witches Hearts" were pinned to children to protect them from evil spirits, while lovers wore hearts to symbolize that they were "bewitched" with love. 

Energizing Talismans:
Witches don't only use jewelry to repel energy, they also use it to attract. The power of the serpent has long been thought to invoke the goddess of fertility and medicine. The dynamic phases of the moon symbolize eternity and immortality. Triangles are ancient Wiccan symbols that connote fire and the destructive cleansing that occurs in order for new growth to arise. Rubies are also associated with fire and are used by witches and wizards to increase and enhance their powers.

Love Spells:
Lockets are the most prevalent charm used in matters of the heart. Witches use the locket to keep loved ones close, to ensure faithfulness, and to encourage the prosperity of a relationship. The chain that a locket hangs from is considered a binding mechanism to ensure that love spells are eternal. 

The skull is one of the oldest symbols of mortality and is used as a reminder to live life to the fullest. Flora and fauna are also used in the realm of Memento Mori as reminders of the fleeting nature of life.
