We present you the astronomical ring. Its secret conceals an extraordinary astronomical instrument.
It is said that during the 16th century, an English prince asked for the creation of a unique jewel. To do so, he called upon the best jewelers in Europe.
An obscure craftsman whose name has been forgotten created a ring of such ingenuity that his secret disappeared with him. In the course of history, only a few copies of this astronomical ring were made.
Recently, the secret of the ring’s manufacture was rediscovered.
Characteristics of the Astronomical Ring:
- The ring can be worn as a ring as well as a necklace
- Elegant design
- Ingenious assembly of 5 rotating rings.
- Material: Zinc alloy
The ring is composed of five rings. The main ring corresponds to the celestial equator represented by the signs of the Zodiac. Two other rings correspond to the meridian axis and the longitude axis.
The people who once owned these rings necessarily had a deep knowledge of ancient astronomical knowledge. That is why they produced this armillary sphere.
Thanks to this astronomical ring, they could have a representation of the entire universe, as it was imagined at the time. No doubt they must have attached great value to these mysterious objects.
