200004: Aquitaine Sundial Ring


Replica of Ancient Time Telling Tool

Over 850 years ago, Eleanor of Aquitaine gave a sundial like this one to King Henry II of England so that Henry would know when to return from the hunt for their visits. Henry had a copy of the dial made for Eleanor that was inlaid with diamonds and engraved with the words Carpe Diem or “Seize the Day.”

Today, the Aquitaine Sundial Ring, named for Henry’s lover, will help you know the time of day. Suspend the ring by its black satin cord and on sunny days a thin ray of sun shines through a tiny hole to illuminate a number, revealing the time. The signs of the Zodiac are also shown along the outside edge of the ring.

Includes instructions.
