  • "The Devil", number 15 in the Tarot Major Arcana, is one of 22 designs in AYP's "Tarot Truth" limited edition series. This pendulum is designed to mirror the earthy, fiery energies of the Tarot’s true master of persuasion, “The Devil”.  As the Devil, we examine what we are bound to - ambition, desire, temptation, pleasure, power, control, or commitment? Right or wrong - the answers may reveal what honoring the fire within has to offer.

    The weight-stone is an orb "stack" of deep dark red Garnet (orb is stacked between smaller Garnet stones, with sterling silver spacers and mounts that create a gentle point at the top and the bottom). The weight-stone suspends from a detachable sterling silver chain with dramatic accents of Black Obsidian, Carnelian, Black Spinel and Garnet.

    The sterling silver fob (the holding piece) in this pendulum is three dimensional, realistic looking - though non-working set of handcuffs that dangle independently from a single connection point. Handcuffs, a type of modern-day manacle, symbolize bondage, restriction, slavery, or imprisonment. For measurements and other details, click the "Details" tab above.
  • The foremost theme of the Devil card is bondage, in its various forms - many of which are self-imposed. In the classic Rider Waite Tarot, human figures stand obediently by the Devil's support post to which they are loosely chained. Handcuffs (or manacles) symbolize bondage, restriction, slavery, or imprisonment.

    The Tarot Truth Limited Edition series is limited to 500 of each design.

    Measurements - The overall length of pendulum is 6 7/8". The chain length (including the lobster claw clasp) is 4 1/2". Weight-stone, including its sterling silver mounting, measures 1 1/2" high x 1/2" wide. Measurements are approximate.

    All stones are genuine. Chain, clasp, and connectors are sterling silver. Please note: As these are natural stones, depth of color, and patterns in each stone may vary.
  • How to wear this pendulum: This pendulum's chain has a clasp that allows you to detach the weight-stone so you can wear it as a pendant - simply by slipping it onto your own neck chain or satin cord. Or you can wear the whole pendulum by using a pendulum-to-pendant adapter, or simply by threading a neck chain or cord through one of the links in the pendulum's chain and letting both ends dangle. (Adapter and neck chain sold separately - see related items below.)

    Sterling Silver - This pendulum is made with sterling silver and contains no base metal parts. Sterling silver is a beautiful and durable alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metal, usually copper. Pendulums made with sterling silver are more sensitive to subtle energy vibrations than those that are constructed with base metals (alloys that use nickle, zinc, lead, and/or tin).

    Caring for your sterling silver - If worn or used much, sterling will eventually oxidize and develop a lovely patina - a nice warm glow accentuated by darkened (tarnished) areas. You can either leave it this way, or if you prefer a bright and shiny surface, gently polish with a treated cloth to remove the oxidation. Never use abrasive cleansers or expose to salts. Store in a cool dry place.
