Amulet of Avalor

The amulet responding to Princess Sofia's command.

The Amulet of Avalor is a mystical jewel that was a family heirloom to the royal family of Avalor, that was said to protect them.[1] It is currently in the possession of Princess Sofia of Enchancia.

Physical appearance

The jewel is connected to a white and purple necklace. The jewel, itself, was ruby red until Princess Elena was sucked into it, turning it purple, until she was released, which then caused it to turn ruby pink.[1] When it activated during the time Elena was trapped inside, either to reward or punish the wearer, it shined light purple. After Elena was released, it shined pink.[2] It also turns blue when summoned by the Secret Library.[3]

Powers and abilities

When Princess Elena was trapped within the amulet, she made it so that if it was either used for kindness or ill gain, the wearer would be either blessed with a gift or cursed with misfortune, respectively, until they set things right. When needing its powers, she would be polite by asking it nicely (as she was essentially asking Elena for these gifts, although she still asks politely sometimes even after Elena was released). Some of them were essential to finding discovering the Secret Library that eventually led to her mission to free Elena in the latter's kingdom of Avalor.

Rewards for good deeds
  • Talking to animals after Sofia helped one in need.[4]
  • Turning into a mermaid after helping Princess Oona get free from a net.[5]
  • Shrinking to the size of a Wee Sprite after helping three of them out of a water fountain, then after losing it, she was granted it a second time when giving them her toy castle to live in.[6]
  • Cedric enlarged a tree with fruits, so he was enlarged in height in return.[7]

Once Elena was removed, these rules were gone, allowing Sofia complete freedom of what she wanted from it, with some exceptions, such as only being able to transform into the animal she is looking at.[2]

It can summon the Secret Library's gondola when turned blue,[3][12] and also the unicorns of the Mystic Isles.[12]



Early history

Elena inside Amulet of Avalor

Elena trapped inside the amulet.

While the Maruvians (the predecessors of Avalorians) created the powers of the Amulet of Avalor,[2] the jewel may have been created in the Mystic Isles.[12]

It was given to Elena by her mother on her fifteenth birthday. A year later, an evil, power-hungry sorceress named Shuriki attacked the kingdom of Avalor and fired her wand at Elena's parents, claiming their lives. When Shuriki did the same to Elena, the amulet protected her by pulling her within it. Shuriki was unaware of this, and the royal wizard, Alacazar, secretly took the amulet to find a princess worthy of freeing her. But his search took too long, leading him into old age, so he used the last of his strength to transform himself into a book, which ended up in Enchancia Castle's Secret Library.

During that time, the amulet fell into the hands of many princesses, each learning what it could do, as Elena tested them all to find the right one who could free her,[1] Princess Charlotte very briefly owned it.[14] The amulet came to Enchancia Castle because of Duchess Matilda (Tilly).[16] Tilly wore it for a time.[3] The Grand Mum knew of it and told stories to King Roland II about how it protected the princesses who wore it.[17] But she never wore it herself.[16]

Recent history

Amulet's 1st reward

Sofia's first reward.

When King Roland II was picking a welcome gift from the royal jewel room for his newly arrived stepdaughter, the amulet lit up, drawing him to choose that.[1][17]

When Sofia accidentally froze everyone at her debut ball, she didn't know what to do, but then the amulet summoned Cinderella who suggested getting help from Amber who hadn't gone because of her torn dress.[4]

When Sofia met Minimus, the flying horse, she explained to him that she could understand him due to her amulet.[18]

Cedric let Sofia be his apprentice to get closer to the amulet, but when she got him to warm up to her by giving him a gold star like she had been given for passing her test, he decided to let it go for until the next day.[19]

A baby griffin called Jasper stole the amulet while Sofia had let Amber talked her into switching special jewelry they had been temporarily given. When Cedric saw Jasper with the amulet, he tried to steal it from him, but was then accused of stealing it and everything else Jasper had taken, but Sofia had put all the clues together which led to hiding spot Jasper and the recovery of her amulet. Sofia had been in despair that should couldn't hear Clover and her other animal friends, but now had a lot of catching up to do.[17]

When Sofia got to sing Enchancian Anthem the she let the fame go to her head and treated her best friends, Jade and Ruby Hanshaw, poorly as a result, which caused the amulet to make her sound like a frog whenever she began to talk or sing. The amulet then summoned Princess Belle to help her see she had to make up for what she did to Jade and Ruby.[20]

After Sofia helped Princess Oona get untangled from a net, the amulet granted her the power to transform into a mermaid.[5]
