The Antares concrete and diamond dust ring achieve minimalist beauty with modernist jewellery design representing the sparkle of the starry night sky.
Antares is derived from the Ancient Greek meaning "equal to-Ares" ("equal to-Mars"), due to the similarity of its reddish hue to the appearance of the planet Mars. As brightest star in the constellation Scorpius, it is often referred to as "the heart of the scorpion". Along with Aldebaran, Regulus, and Fomalhaut, Antares comprises the group known as the "Royal stars of Persia". Antares is visible in the sky all night around May 31 of each year, when the star is at opposition to the Sun. At this time, Antares rises at dusk and sets at dawn as seen at the equator.
