The black crown ring, DIDO

The Dido ring was created for strong women who have often had to make sacrifices during their lives. To be strong does not mean to lack sensitivity, but sometimes in order not to break down it is necessary to appear invincible before the world. Dido showed great determination by founding Carthage, – women wearing her ring will surely be warriors in their lifetime.

Dido was a Phoenician queen.  On the death of her father, her succession was opposed by her brother Pygmalion, who secretly killed her husband and took the throne in order to steal the treasure.

Dido left Tyre with an imposing entourage and embarked on an endless peregrination. Juno had promised her a new land on which to found her own town, and had even told her that the place would be where she would find the skull of a horse while digging in the sand on the beach. 

When she finally set foot on the coast of Lybia, Dido was granted permission to remain from King Iarba, and to take as much land 'as the skin of an ox could hold'. And in fact, Carthage was known as 'Birsa', that in Greek meant 'skin of an ox', and in Phoenician 'rock'.
