Sparkling Sundays

by Charlotte Mostert on March 24, 2024

Sunday originates from the Latin phrase diēs sōlis (“sun’s day”) that later got adapted to the Old English word ‘sunnandæg’.

With Christianity, Latin-derived Romance languages changed the dedication from “sun’s day” to “lord’s day” (domingo in Spanish, dimanche in French, and domenica in Italian). However, “Sun’s day” maintained popularity in the languages that would become modern English.

In Germanic pre-Christian religions, such as Norse Mythology, the sun was represented by a woman named Sol who rode a horse-and-chariot carrying the sun across the sky, before being hunted and bested by a wolf beast named Skoll. Her brother, Mani, carried the moon in a similar fashion, and you can probably guess which day of the week he’s the inspiration for. And in Greek Mythology, the god Apollo was believed to drive his chariot across the sky each day.

Now that you know where the name for Sunday derives from, here are some radiant pieces that you can own to celebrate the bright light that brings life to our planet.

Imagine the explosion of a large star that would give off up to one billion times more energy than the sun; the impressive and striking Super Nova Ring is our most authentic representation of this illuminating and fascinating phenomenon.

Celebrate the mystique around sunset with our Sunset Boulevard Ring. The ring is bedecked with a 4 ct. princess-cut centre stone that creates a pristine centre piece, lending this striking ring its timeless charm.
