Welcome back to Humor Nation. While being a vampire brings numerous kinds of powers and abilities such as super speed, rapid healing, mind control, invulnerability, but there are numerous weaknesses too. Perhaps one of the major weakness or limitation of the vampires is that they cannot walk into the sunlight, it will burn them. In order to protected from the sunlight, a vampire needs to wear a daylight ring or a daylight amulet, it is a piece of jewelry that has a lapis lazuli gem which has been enchanted by a spell cast by a witch. Throughout the show, we have seen the male vampires wearing a daylight ring and the females wearing necklaces or bracelets.
As long as a vampire is touching the enchanted gem in any way, it remains protected from the sunlight. Also, once a witch has a cast a spell on the gem, it lasts forever even after the witch who had done the spell has died. Also, the enchanted ring or necklace containing the gem can only be worn by the vampire for whom it was intended. It won’t work if some other vampire wears it.
A vampire who wears an enhanced object is known as a daywalker as it allows them to walk freely in the sunlight during the day. A major difference between the books and the show is that the jewelry can be transferred to other vampire in the books. As Elena wore the ring of Katherine and it protected her from the sunlight in the books. The werewolves need to wear a moonlight amulet or a moonlight ring which provides them the ability to control their transformation into the beast form at their will. We first saw the witch Genevieve making the moonlight rings in the first Season of Originals, she made everyone believe that she was making it for the Crescent wolves, but she betrayed Klaus, used his blood to cast a spell that made him weak. She then gave away the rings to the Guerrera Pack which allowed them to tap onto the strength of Klaus.
Later, when Esther Mikaelson returned from the dead and possessed the body of the Harvest girl named Cassie, she created new moonlight rings for the werewolves as she intended to make them powerful, and thus changing the dynamics of power in the French Quarter. Also, the hybrids don’t require the moonlight rings as they can control their transformation at their will.
