The following is a simple implementation of what you want


class Class
   def const_def(*symbols)
     symbols.each_with_index do |symbol, index|
       const_set(symbol, index + 1)
     end
   end
end

class MyClass
   const_def :CONST_A1, :CONST_A2, :CONST_A3

   p CONST_A1, CONST_A2, CONST_A3
end

#=>
