Daylight Savings

Seize the day with a wearable sundial modeled after the ancient timepiece given to King Henry II by Eleanor of Aquitaine in 1152. Gifted to the king as a tool for gauging when to return from the hunt in time for their secret trysts, it's said that Henry made a replica encrusted with diamonds spelling "carpe diem" for his beloved Eleanor. An exacting sundial that accurately gauges the time of day, this authentic, sterling silver pendant is a wearable piece of history.

Rotate the dial to align its discrete hole with the current month and dangle the pendant in direct sunlight. Watch as a tiny ray of light passes through to highlight a number on the inside of its orb, showing the time of day. Includes booklet with instructions for use, historical and educational information on the Aquitaine sundial. Handmade of sterling silver in Canada.

      Comments about SUNDIAL NECKLACE:

      I wanted to give a keepsake and the sundial references time - our anniversary. Can be worn or not. A little larger than I thought but necessary to read, it actually works. The chain is too delicate for a man but this can be changed. The service was wonderful.

        Comments about SUNDIAL NECKLACE:

        I bought this necklace for my 30th birthday. I wanted something unique that would last. The story of Henry the 2nd deepens the meaning for me. This is a high quality product. It is well built and simple to use. It does tell natural time so you must add one hour for daylight savings time. In addition, it is set to read time at 40 degrees. I live at 49 degrees and find I have to subtract a half hour or so in the morning and add a half hour at night. These adjustments help remind me of the history behind a tool like this.

          This is unique and beautiful. I buy jewlery all the time, and am always looking for something different. This is exactly the kind of piece I would buy. Unfortunately, $156 puts it way out of my price range. It would have to be something incredibly amazing for me to spend that kind of cash on silver. I have bought personalized necklaces for half that.

          Really neat idea, but the price is very high considering the material. Lower the price and it should be a hit.

          Vote: Thumbs up!

          This is incredibly cool, amazingly historic, and just completely unique. I want this, I would buy it for people. While it IS pricey, which hinders me buying it right NOW (hopefully it's still around in 5-10 years when I'll have the money to get it), the price doesn't seem outrageous to me. It's a gorgeous piece of jewelry, which jewelry routinely costs hundreds of dollars, and it's functional and unique. The price seems reasonable to me. Just wish I could afford it now.

          Vote: Thumbs down!

          I think it's a great idea and love it, but would never pay that much for it (for me or for a gift). It looks like it should be worth about 1/4 of the price. If you want to charge that much for it, you need to add a little bling.

          Much too expensive for sterling silver!!! I love the idea, but that price would deter me from purchasing.

          I'm a huge fan of wearing something that requires explanation and/or has a story behind it around my neck, it always makes for a great conversation! I'm assuming that the chain is included in the price which isn't that bad of a deal if it is sterling silver. This item looks to be very unisex and is completely functional, who wants to where a watch when you could wear this?!

          For those who are voting thumbs-down based on price: are you not familiar with this website? There are plenty of things on here that are quite expensive but are unique/uncommon. I might even go as far as saying most items available are overpriced. Just because something is pricey doesn't mean it won't be purchased (COACH, Burberry, etc anyone?). This item is really cute and I've definitely never seen anything like it. People pay over $50 for just one tiny Pandora charm.
