D ouble-sided cufflinks date back to the early 18th century and to this day signify a tradition of elegance, with only a few companies continuing to produce these luxurious pieces. Lion Cufflinks feature the face of a lion, surrounded by the rays of the shining sun, all placed within a triangle. Akin to the symbol of the all-seeing eye, the lion watches on from the apex of the pyramid, aware of his noble station in life. Around this emblem is a halo of diamonds, set into the back of a serpent holding its tail indicating renewal and achievement of desired goals.

L ions have been a recognizable symbol of strength, dominance, and nobility for thousands of years. In this latest Volund collection, the lions look calmly upon the wearer, bestowing upon them their grace and status. In addition to animal symbolism, alchemical influences permeate this collection. Alchemists often used both feminine and masculine aspects of the lion family as symbols – the lion and the lioness. Together, these represent the duality of nature: strength and yielding, power and creed, acid and base. Lions also symbolize rejuvenation. The jewelled pieces with their precious metals and stones represent this final stage of purification – perfection of nature through skilled artistry.
