The first of the Rings (Pentacles( arcana tarot cards from Cassandra Jean’s complete Shadowhunter Tarot. The ten of rings shows the Branwell family ring, with a pattern of waves, and Charlotte and Henry. The nine of rings shows Jace and Will Herondale and the Herondale family ring with a pattern of birds. The eight of rings shows Matthew Fairchild, the Fairchild family ring with a pattern of wings, and the seven of rings shows Clary and Jonathan Morgenstern and the Morgenstern ring with its pattern of stars.
