  • Garrick Ollivander remembers every wand he ever sold!
    Unfortunately his driver does not, which is why he is asking for everyone's help in developing this database.

    This is an EXTREMELY large listing of every wand made by the Ollivander family or their apprentices since 1909.  As of March 2005, Ollivanders has crafted over 47,000 combinations, of over 40 wand woods, and more than 15 types of wand cores*. The wands generally have a randomly generated length of 20 to 45 centimetres (7⅝ to 17¾ inches), though there have been rare instances of extremely short or long wands.

    *all wands since 1971 will contain one of the three Supreme Cores

    If, even admist all these wands, you can't find a match for the one you envisioned for your character, I have no problem editing an entry to include your preferred wand! Just choose one that's very close and let me know what detail(s) to change.

    This is a HUGE file. I've been told by members who looked at the beta version that their phones (for instance) couldn't handle it. There are no viruses or anything but it just may be too much data for your device to handle.

    Normally I will keep this spreadsheet sorted by wood, then core, then length. However if it is done up by Box Number, I am adding some more "created" wands to the end of the list - please be patient and I will return it to "normal"! :)
    (1) If your character purchased his or her wand at Ollivanders, and you would like that wand added to the directory, just find a box number with a wand that matches your description and post it here!

    [o][b]Purchase Date:[/b] see note below

    (3) If you can't open the file, but still want your wand listed, please use the following code:

    [o][b]Purchase Date:[/b] see note below
    [o][b]Trait (optional):[/b] in case you want one or put one in your profile

    *The Purchase Date is usually the month before their first year at Hogwarts (which is the August after their 11th birthday), and while August 1ˢᵗ is usually Diagon Alley Shopping Day, any day in August will be fine.
    For purebloods and halfbloods, in certain circumstances the witch or wizard may receive their wand on their 11th birthday, but keep in mind they will have had no training and can get in trouble with the Ministry or, worse, their parents if they start flouting their powers.

  • 🪄 Wandmakers look at their service areas (and wand wood areas) as "wand regions" rather than as a list of countries. A wand region is a (generally) contiguous area with the same climate, geographical features, and fauna. As such, wand regions vary greatly in size between highly distinct areas with very small (on a global scale) acreage and fairly homogeneous areas with quite large acreage. Not all wandmakers concur about how many wand regions there are in the world; however, generally, two of the three defining features (fauna, geography, climate) must change in notable frequency to be considered a shift in wand region.

    🪄 Below is a map of the generally accepted wand regions throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. These wand regions will be listed on the tables below for wandmakers, wand woods, and wand cores.

    🪄 Below is a list of the most well-known wandmakers and their companies in North America, Europe, and Asia.
    Smaller wandmakers do operate throughout these continents; furthermore, wands created by any wandmakers may be re-sold by "secondhand wand shops." Nearly all wandmakers caution, however, that a secondhand wand will never work as well for a customer as it did for its originally matched owner.

  • 🪄 Only a minority of trees can produce wand quality wood, just as only a minority of humans can produce quality magic. (Bowtruckle nests are a telltale sign of usable wood, but they do not nest in all usable tree species.) Formerly a somewhat guarded secret passed down through years of experience from wandmaking masters to apprentices, the most common usable wand woods are now fairly public knowledge. However, pairing the right wood with the right owner (and the right core) is a skill that still only comes with long practice and study of wandlore.

    🪄 The following table presents the most ideal genera of wand wood producing trees and a sampling of some of their species in each wand region of the world. The notes on wand traits, wand specialties, and owner traits are only general notes, and individual wands may differ especially after being paired with certain cores.

  • 🪄 The core of a wand is a magical substance that is processed and fitted into the wood of the wand, enhancing the magical ability of the wood and/or providing new magical capability to the synthesis. The overwhelming majority of wand cores come from creature parts (generally Beasts, some Beings, and even a few non-magical creatures), but some magical plants and magical ores can be used as well.

    🪄 The following table presents the most common sources of wand cores and a sampling of some species of the genera in each wand region of the world. As with wand woods, the notes provided here are only general notes for the core types, and individual wands may differ especially after being paired with certain woods.

  • Mr. Ollivander remembers his sales to the following people:

    @Cassandra Nichols ~ @Roderick Macnair ~ @Cordelia Leighton ~ @Hermione Granger-Weasley (the second time, 1 Aug 1998) ~ @Anthony Goldstein (1 Aug 1998) ~ @Killian Buckley ~ @Artie Harrison ~ @Shelby Trickett (I went ahead and changed the length @Fosse )

    ( @cstine I also made all the updates you asked for to existing registrations)

    Staff, could someone please supply these lovely people with the Wand Chooses the Wizard badge?

    done. in the future it might be easier for you to pm somebody on staff directly or these requests might get lost in these threads when other people post

    @Anna Filimonova 's purchase has also been recorded and she may receive the Wand Chooses the Zauberer badge.

    Regarding Cassandra's wand...
    Character Name: @Cassandra Nichols
    Purchase Date: August 3rd, 1998
    Trait (optional): an extremely feminine wand
    from sheet: 11 1/8th inches, laurel, veela hair core -- this core type straight up does not exist on your sheet, but i'm fairly attached to it: can we brainstorm around this? lmk
    Your core didn't show up originally because of the established canon - Garrick refuses to use anything except the three "Supreme Cores." But, his father Gervaise and his grandfather Gerbold could have used veela hair, as they experimented more. So, I changed a dittany stalk core and gave her an older wand of Gerbold's make, Box № 10767 (1910, so take care of the old girl!).

    Ms Granger (as she was at the time) and Mr Goldstein reminded me that Ollivanders' was not open from July 2, 1996, until about August 1, 1998. As such, the following characters' wand purchases may need to be retconned (but I won't press the issue, I just like to stick to canon as much as possible).

  • #15 by Lionel Sterling on 17 Mar 2023
  • conveniently, mr macnair's reason for possessing an old family heirloom already led me to question whether a similar situation might not be relevant to lionel and the shop literally being closed makes that a necessity. I would be happy to retcon to something older (perhaps purchased in, idk, early February 1948, a late-in-life second wand possessed by a great-great-uncle Torcall or something after an unfortunate mishap with his first?). maybe box 29846 would work?
