Unique Fun Gifts That Tell Time With The Sun - Aquitaine Wearable Sundials
Re-connect with the present moment, nature and our universe. Tell time naturally with the sun! In 1152 Eleanor of Aquitaine gave a sundial to King Henry II to remind him when it was time to leave the hunt and join her for one of their love trysts. Henry had a copy of the dial made for Eleanor and had it inlaid with diamonds and engraved with the words Carpe Diem, or "Seize the Day". We can't inlay the diamonds, but Henry's inspired words are there on the inside of our replica Aquitaine pendants.
