Seal of Solomon

The Seal of Solomon (or Ring of Solomon;  Arabic : خاتم سليمان‎ Khātam Sulaymān) is the  signet ring  attributed to  King Solomon  in medieval Arabic tradition, from which it developed in Islamic and Jewish mysticism and in  Western occultism . It is the predecessor of the  Star of David , which became the symbol of the  Jewish people  in modern times.

It was often depicted in either a  pentagram or hexagram  shape. This ring variously gave Solomon the power to command  demons ,  jinn  (genies) and spirits, or to speak with animals. Due to the proverbial  wisdom of Solomon, his signet ring, or its supposed design, it came to be seen as an amulet or talisman, or a symbol or character in medieval and Renaissance-era magic, occultism, and alchemy.
