The Moon Rings are mermaid tail-shaped rings with a blue moonstone embedded in the middle. It is a powerful object and can be used for perform powerful and complex magic, capable of amplify mermaid's powers hundreds of times.


The Moon Rings store moonlight and only works in a place that can receive full moonlight, such Lyla used it to open the Trident Cave, but it did not work inside. When a mermaid graduates Mermaid School, she is given a Moon Ring and is initiated in their respective pod. If a mermaid loses her Moon Ring, it will be near impossible to receive a new one unless they can prove to their respective Mermaid Council their worth. In Moon Ring 2 it is shown that the rings' stones react to mermaid magic. Twice, the mermaid trio's use of magic in close proximity to the ring caused its stone to glow and release a beam which stunned Rita. However, the properties of a moon stone can be altered, like the trident's which was altered to absorb a mermaid's energy rather than react to it. Moon Rings, as magical objects, remain even if merpeople are under the Legs Spell or in their true forms.

It was Aquata's Moon Ring that allowed NixieSirena, and Lyla to get legs. Rita later teaches the girls to use the Moon Ring's power when she agrees to help them.

Improper use of powers or less powers than required is also implied to cause problems, as seen when Lyla and Sirena attempted to stop a rainstorm using the Moon Ring without Nixie, causing snowfall indoors. The rings' source of power is in the moonstones ebbeded on them. Moon Rings also depletes over time, and to load them, they have to be exposed to moonlight, or another object that stores it, such the Trident used to.

Moon Rings amplifies mermaid's powers hundreds of times, they are dangerous and if a mermaid doesn't know what they're doing, or if a land person goes outside during a Full Moon, it can be harmful to themselves or others. To use a Moon Ring, a mermaid has to focus on their intent. A mermaid has to also focus her energy on the Moon Ring and meld their thoughts with it. She has to also be positive and unleash positive energy when using a Moon Ring, foccusing her mind on what they want the Moon Ring to do.


Powers and Abilities


  • A mermaid only gets her Moon Ring when their training is complete in Mermaid School and they are initiated into the Pod.
  • It is unknown what happens if a land person wears the ring on a Full Moon, but it would be dangerous, as stated by Lyla, Nixie and Sirena.
  • The Trident and the Moon Rings shared the same moonstones, but the only one in the Trident was much bigger, thus the power of the Trident was more powerful than the Moon Ring.
  • The Moon Ring's magic source is the crystals that are encrusted in the middle.
