A great deal of thought went into the design of the wands in the Harry Potter universe. Each wand is meant to reflect the personality of the witch or wizard who wields it. For example, Harry’s wand is simple, but incredibly powerful, much like himself. Bellatrix’s wand is crooked and resembles a bird’s talon and is described by Ollivander as being “unyielding,” much like her.

Although Potter wand lore isn’t extensively explored in the series, it is significant. There’s a profound bond between the wizard and the wand. For example, both Harry’s and Voldemort’s wands contain the same core - a phoenix feather from Fawkes. The wands, like Harry and Voldemort, are linked.

Harry Potter wands are a key insight into the witch or wizard to which they belong. Just like the story itself, the magical accouterments of the Harry Potter universe are complex. Whether they're a member of the Order of the Phoenix or got sorted into the House of Slytherin, every Potter world wand has significance. 

And for your viewing pleasure, here are some dank pics of Potter wands.
