Solid 14k gold with a white diamond weight .03 carats.
This piece is hand carved by the designer and cast using ancient sand casting methods.
Polaris is a star in the northern constellation of Ursa Minor and is commonly called the North Star or Pole Star. It is situated in the outermost position in the handle of the Little Dipper. The reason this is a prominent star throughout history is because the axis of Earth is pointed almost directly at it. During the night, Polaris does not rise or set, but remains in nearly the same spot. This has been a beacon for travelers and a solace representing stability for many.
The North Star and its fixed location is also an important discovery for astronomers. After being discovered by the astronomer Claudius Ptolemy, astronomers and navigators were able to use knowledge of a presumed axis to hypothesize about Earth’s rotation and placement among other planetary objects.
