On sunny days, watch these sundial pendants go to work by suspending the dial by its black satin cord. Aim the hole in the side of the dial toward the sun. Through a tiny hole, a thin ray of sunshine shines through to illuminate a number on the inside of the dial showing the time of day. Available in several design motifs in Pewter, Sterling Silver, mixed Silver and Gold, and Gold in 10, 14, 18 or 22 karats. All Shepherds Watch dials come with instructions.
Sundials were in widespread use in the New World, especially in the Mesoamerican city-states of the Aztec and the Maya. The importance of the calendar to all of the pre-Colombian civilizations cannot be exaggerated. These sundials are not true replicas, however. Most sundials in the New World were fixed and thus were not portable or wearable like ours. However, the design motifs engraved on our New World line of wearable sundial jewelry are all authentic.
