This ring was made in honor of the very special time of the year when the Monarchs arrive in Mexico. According to traditional belief, the monarchs are the souls of ancestors who are returning to Earth for their annual visit. The first monarchs arrive at their winter home in Mexico each fall by the first of November. Two events are taking place in Mexico when the monarchs appear. Two important events coincide with the arrival of the Monarchs. The Corn Harvest and Day of the Dead Festival/ Dia de los Muertos.

Since pre- Hispanic times the indigenous people of the region witnessed the arrival of monarchs. In the language of the native Purépecha Indians, the monarch butterfly is called the harvester butterfly, because monarchs appear when it's time to harvest the corn.
The Mexican Sacred holiday Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos was a cultural sacred celebration that historically lasted a full month during the Harvest. It Maize (corn) was the peoples life source.

This ring is handcrafted in sterling and fine silver and accented in beautiful Mexican Turquoise, and nu-gold casting grain for the eyes.
