This wand belonged to Seraphina Picquery, former President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America. It was crafted by Violetta Beauvais and was, like all Beauvais wands, made of swamp mayhaw wood with a rougarou hair core.[1]

In the film, the gem is purple. [2] And it can also be seen as purple in Fantastic Beasts and J.K Rowling's Wizarding World. However, the prop replica's gem is pink.


Behind the scenes

  • "'Seraphina's wand was nice,' says prop maker Pierre Bohanna. 'It had a pink jewelled handle, quite simple, quite classic, influenced by deco, and was ebony, tipped with a silver clasp around it.'".[3]
