Copper Aquitaine Celestial Sundial Ring Pendant

This beautiful copper sundial ring necklace shows the time of day within a cheerful celestial mosaic of the moon and stars.  In 1152, Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henry II enjoyed each other’s company – and we don’t mean at the dinner table. Eleanor gave the king a similar sundial to the one shown here, to remind him when it was time to leave the hunt come home for a romantic interlude.  Henry returned the favor and gave his lover a similar sundial, engraved with the words Carpe Diem, or Seize the Day.
