Once the capital of the Kingdom of Kush, the ancient city of Meroë is graced with many pyramids to the east and a royal city to the west engulfed by beautiful dunes. Whilst growing up, I was fortunate to visit this amazing ancient city many times. Sleeping in the desert, under a sky filled with a million stars and waking up to the rising sun still surrounded by scattered stars, is a memory I will treasure forever. My affinity and love for the desert is deeply rooted in these memories.
The opal set in this ebony ring, with its many hues, embodies the essence of this ancient city, encapsulating all the vivid colours and emotions I was blessed to experience… from dawn to dusk.
