Corona Borealis is a beautiful constellation found in the northern sky. Known as the "northern crown" in Latin, it is one of the original constellations first described in the second century. We are proud of our northern roots here in Canada and we use the prettiest pear-shaped gemstones for setting.
These rings feature a hammered band and a faceted semi-precious gemstone. Sizes 3 through 12 available. All rings are made using sterling silver or gold-filled wire and are soldered, pickled, and polished in our Vancouver, BC studio.

Corona Borealis is associated with the myth of Princess Ariadne of Crete, most famous for her part in helping the Greek hero Theseus defeat the Minotaur, the creature with a human body and head of a bull that lived in a labyrinth designed by Daedalus. In the myth, Ariadne married the god Dionysus. The circlet of stars in the constellation Corona Borealis represents the crown made by the god Hephaestus that she wore on her wedding day.
