Pendant "Heaven's Gate" with amethyst and sterling silver (925)


Octogram, an eight pointed star, etc. There are several names for this important symbol. I’m familiar with the octogram mainly from socks and sweaters knitted by grandma. Somehow it’s warm and cozy and very Estonian. I was surprised to learn that this symbol was already used by the Sumerians. It is an ancient symbol of protection, which defends us from evil and brings happiness. Octogram also is a symbol of sun, source, North Star, morning star, four cardinal points and I’m sure it has several other meanings. Surely everyone will find exactly what they need in this symbol, but it must be said that it carries enormous power. Octogram has also been called an eight-pointed star. Number eight sideways is a sign of infinity – eternity, endlessness. In China, number eight symbolizes the totality and comprehensiveness of the Universe. For me, octogram is like a gate – a Heaven’s Gate, and after passing through we can fly higher and see the bigger picture of life.
It is a relatively simple, but also a very powerful pendant. It carries several symbols that already separately have mighty energy. There is a circle in the middle – a circle of amethyst. A circle is a sacred symbol marking infinity, unconditional and unlimited love. Around the circle the are two crossing eyes, which together form an all-seeing protective eye. The shape of the eye or vesica piscis is a symbol through which light was introduced to this world. It is the symbol of beginning which appears when female and male aspects unite. There are four eagles flying around the octogram. An eagle is a bird that can fly higher than any other bird, and that is why it has been considered a messenger of God. And as there is a circle in the middle of everything, the pendant is surrounded with a circle – divine infinity, with no beginning or end.
