The cauldron features widely in Celtic myths, carrying various symbology. The Dagda cauldron belonged to the god-druid and was the cauldron of plenty, which left no-one unsatisfied. The Mabinogi of Branwen mentions the cauldron of rebirth, where the dead were cast and then came alive again. This latter meaning is similar to the Wiccan belief, which sees the cauldron and its shape as representing the womb of the Great Goddess, where everything that is born out of it returns to it. The earth Goddess Ceredwen/Cerridwen, who is the goddess of transformation, is also linked with the cauldron as a feminine image and the idea that it brings life. 

Cauldrons are of course also known as something in which mixtures, magic and food can be brewed and it's often connected with ritual and spells. It's partly because of this ability to create that the idea of the cauldron as like the Goddess is enhanced, as both the womb and the cauldron work in different ways to create something new.

More About the Symbol of the Pentacle / Pentagram
The pentagram was considered by the ancient Greeks and medieval astrologers to have supernatural properties and to be a protective symbol. Often in the past people would mark their doors with pentagrams to ward off evil witchcraft and spirits. 

In good magic today (with the top pointed upwards) it is often used as a symbol to support transmission and communication with the spirit world. Its five points are often seen to represent the four classic elements of earth, water, air and fire joining with the fifth element of spirit to create life. A five-pointed star (pentagram) with a circle around it is referred to as a pentacle. This circle represents sacred space in which the fifth element of spirit controls the four earthly elements.

Also in the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight a pentacle adorns his shield representing the five knightly virtues of generosity, courtesy, chastity, brotherly love and piety.

More About Peter Stone Jewellery
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.

Peter Stone

Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
