Sundial Ring – Let’s you Give the Gift of Time
I know a lot of girls who might be looking for a ring this holiday season, but if you’re not quite ready to make that kind of commitment, or you’re just looking for an unusual present to give that special someone, we have you covered.
Check out this nifty little ring that can actually tell the time. Designed to be a modern version of the Aquitiane Sundial Ring that Queen Eleanor had designed for her husband, Henry II of England, so he would always know when it was time to head back to the castle. This interesting, and quite unusual ring can be worn on a size 10 finger, or on a chain, or leather cord as a pendant that would be sure to be a conversation piece.
One simply needs to turn the ring dial so that the tiny hole aligns with the month, and then turn the hole so that the suns rays will shine through it, and where that ray lands will tell you the time. No batteries required. You can even calibrate the ring to take into account your latitude, so the ring will work wherever you are. Made of durable stainless steel, with acid etched markings, this gift is sure to be a hit. Of course Henry imprisoned the Queen in a castle and ran off to party with his friends, never worrying too much about the time, but that’s another story.
