The Astrolabe is an instrument formerly used to make astronomical measurements, typically of the altitudes of celestial bodies, and in navigation for calculating latitude, before the development of the sextant. In its basic form (known from classical times), it consists of a disk with the edge marked in degrees and a pivoted pointer.
Put it in more simple words an Astrolabe is an ancient instrument used for estimating the altitude and predicting the position of celestial objects, such as the moon, other planets, and stars.
In Jewelry words an Astrolabe is
“An instrument that raises columns of filigree made of gold and silver thread that end in jewels.
This effort of the Astrolabe can be compared to that of the clouds when they slowly remove the day from the sea, thus we are born under a golden rain that dazzles our face, auroras of rare diamond or on platinum nights, and thus we differentiate day from night, in gold and platinum with an Astrolabe”.
Curated Assembling Related To This Perspective
We have chosen these pieces as part of the proposal of what can be understood in the jewelry design: “Astrolabe”.
The pieces that we have selected are because their work can evoke the meaning in our proposal.
For us, looking for meaning and purpose are ideas that can be accompanied by a beautiful piece of art, as is a Jewel.
Would you like to see how the days and the night are through and Jewel Astrolabe?
We hope that you will enjoy the selection.

Ines Arenas Jewelry Gallery Says Thank You…
Jewelry is one of the forms in which artistic creation is presented. What art is has been discussed and continues to be discussed? For some, art is the concept, the content of the work; for others, art is the form, the how it is presented. The content is not required.
For us, in any artistic manifestation, both elements must be merged or amalgamated: form and content.
Art does not emerge if one of these two elements disappears.
Since the beginning of Western civilization, jewelry is one of the symbolic representations of its history. And it has changed with each age through different styles, but it has always expressed beliefs, religion, family, sexuality, and even the social status of the human being.
Today, thanks to the Internet, jewelry has become a language. A way of saying understood by everyone. Because art is about connecting the artist with the viewer.
This is why we present jewelry the way we do.
You the public be the last stroke in any Jewelry Design.
