The most common accessories in the modern world that can be regarded as amulets are bracelets, pendants, earrings. Jewelry made of gold and silver are popular not only among women. Men firmly believe that special seals and rings help in business, influence the loyalty of the fairer sex, and protect from the evil eye.
The most powerful remedy for envious people, enemies for every representative of the stronger sex is a gold men's ring "Save and Preserve". The attribute is worn by Orthodox Christians who want to protect themselves from the evil eye, damage and other manifestations of negative feelings - anger, hatred. It is believed that such amulets first appeared at monasteries in the 19th century. They were made of silver (less often of gold) for pilgrims, served as amulets, and were powerful amulets. The phrase "Save and Preserve" is not accidental - these are the words of a short Christian prayer.
Despite the obvious religious orientation of the ring with a characteristic inscription, the Orthodox Church does not approve of wearing an accessory as a piece of jewelry that can mystically influence one's fate. You can wear the attribute as a reminder of God or as an example of a testimony of firm faith. The rim engraved jewelry for men is made of silver or gold. They are wide or more sophisticated.
So that the ring with the prayer "Save and Preserve" really serves as a powerful amulet, a person should not just wear it, but have an unshakable faith in the Almighty... Only in this case the amulet with a prayer phrase sends an invisible appeal to God for help in difficult times. The words engraved on the rim of the accessory bear a strong Orthodox faith, and in a certain sense it is capable of replacing a pectoral cross, amulet.
You can order a charm with an engraved prayer from a jeweler, but it is better to get a beautiful ring in the church shop... The amulet has already been consecrated here. If a man purchases a jewelry in an online store, the accessory must be taken to the church and consecrated after receiving the parcel.
Only after the Orthodox rite will he be endowed with the ability to protect a person from the evil eye and other evil forces.
What are they?
Prayer rings are made of gold or silver, which is no coincidence. For example, a silver accessory has a positive effect on the health of the cardiovascular system, respiratory tract and has powerful antibacterial properties. The noble metal is well known in Christianity, because such material was often used to decorate images and icon frames. He also often served for melting pectoral crosses.
585 gold rings are also found as amulets that can protect the Orthodox believer from the influence of evil forces. Gold - both yellow and white - has healing properties along with silver. It is believed that the noble metal protects against bacteria, infectious diseases, feeds the body with the necessary energy to fight diseases, and activates brain functions. For these and other reasons wearing a gold ring or signet is just as useful as silver jewelry.
When buying a talisman, you should focus on your own understanding, attitude to religion. Rings with the prayer "Save and Preserve" are different. They differ:
- form of execution;
- a kind of metal;
- the style of the inscription;
Another criterion influences the rich variety of choices. Amulets are often not just for men. Jewelry is often worn by women and girls, which does not contradict the generally accepted and church canons.
You can ask the jeweler to engrave the prayer on the outside or inside. If a person needs the protection of God, the inscription should be on the front side... When it is required to indicate adherence to the Orthodox faith, it is necessary to order the back engraving. Also, when choosing, you should take into account the nuance that the ostentatious luxury of a ring is a sign of pride and vanity.
