The “Star”ring was inspired by story of the Starfish : A vacationing businessman was walking along a beach when he saw a young boy. Along the shore were many starfish that had been washed up by the tide and were sure to die before the tide returned. The boy was walking slowly along the shore and occasionally reached down and tossed a beached starfish back into the ocean. The businessman, hoping to teach the boy a little lesson in common sense, walked up to the boy and said, “I have been watching what you are doing, son. You have a good heart, and I know you mean well, but do you realize how many beaches there are around here and how many starfish are dying on every beach every day? Surely, such an industrious and kindhearted boy such as yourself could find something better to do with your time. Do you really think that what you are doing is going to make a difference?” The boy looked up at that man, and then he looked down at a starfish by his feet. He picked up the starfish, and as he gently tossed it back into the ocean, he said, “It makes a difference to that one.”
The story of the starfish legend speaks volumes about love, guidance and how one person can make a difference. In Christianity the Starfish represents the Virgin Mary (Stella Maris means Star of the Sea), who lovingly creates safe travel over troubled waters and is also seen as an emblem of salvation during trying times. The star and the starfish are also seen as celestial symbols, and as such, they represent infinite divine love. In addition to love, the Starfish also holds characteristics such as guidance, vigilance, inspiration, brilliance and intuition.
At Stellor Custom Jewelry, located by the coast of historic Plymouth harbor, we were inspired to design and create the beautiful “star” ring to symbolize infinite divine love. The ring is featured in Argentium Sterling Silver and can also be created in Platinum, 14KT yellow or white Gold. This artistic and modern interpretation of the classic starfish makes this ring not only unique and beautiful, but a wearable piece of fashion art. “Star”ring has a matching pendant, bracelet and earrings to complete your collection.
Express your infinite love and make someone the “star”ring role in your life by giving them this symbolic, elegant ring.
