Greek Lion Pendant with Sapphire | 18K Gold Plated
Brand: Cleopatra's Bling
Designer, Olivia was born a wanderer. From childhood, surrounded by trinkets, crystals and her treasure chest. Cleopatra’s Bling was born from an adoration of travel, the ethereal, and the symbolic. A fusion of eastern allure and western style. Dreamed up in Paris, she moved to Turkey to learn the art of adornment in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Olivia now resides between Istanbul, Paris and Melbourne. She creates jewellery with emotional and historical relevance, dipping into the collective memory, all while respecting ancient jewellery-making traditions.
Design: It is no wonder that the ancients were enthralled with the imagery of lions, nor that they chose to add them to their coinage as signs of the might of their civilisations. The citizens of these bygone civilisations had ancestors who could remember a time in which lions and humans competed for the same prey, and the same shelter. The power of these animal kings was intimately understood by human beings, and as such became a popular motif for the local currency. The Greek Lion pendant depicts the beast rearing dynamically backwards to look over its shoulder at the glowing sapphire sun.
Care: Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.
