Most people in Galileo's time believed that the Earth was the center of the universe and that the Sun and other planets revolved around it. The watcher of the sky, Galileo, observed through telescope various astronomic phenomenon, such as the Venus phases and Jupiter’s moons, and proved that Earth and all other planets revolve around the Sun. The new model of the universe, which stated that the Earth moves around the Sun, is called heliocentrism.
This ring is inspired by heliocentrism: the whole shape of the ring is the solar system, the pearl in the middle of the ring represents the Sun, and the diamonds along the orbits are the planets moving around the Sun. Galileo is just a human being, but through his rebellious spirit, one man can shake the center of the universe. The ring is where the rebellious soul is found, where Galileo is reborn.
Materials: 18kt gold, oxidized silver, yellow/brown/white diamonds, australian gold pearl. Handmade in Florence, Italy.
