I do love a phenomenal lion ring; one of the staples of any antique jewelry collection, animal jewelry has been a time tested favorite. This particularly massive one with a gorgeous Lion's head sits between two lion paws, creating a surrealist lion representation that just delights all who slip this massive example on. In solid 14ct with an 18ct top, the lion head is a cufflink to ring conversion that takes up not only knuckle realestate, but communicates the virtues of the lion's likeness; courage, perseverance, and a joy of the hunt. Let us not forget the sizable bezel set diamond in the lion's mouth, and the gorgeous silky locks around his face! A one of a kind jewel.
