A proud lion stands upon a crescent, while a star shines brightly above. In classical Astrology, the lion is the symbol of the Sun. It is in close relationship to the Moon – influencing her motion and providing her with brilliance. In turn, the Moon exercises her influence upon the Earth, and especially the oceans, represented by Japanese Akoya pearls. Above the Sun are the fixed stars – crafted in platinum. A crescent of gold blackened with ruthenium and set with diamonds underscores this connection. Altogether, a map of the cosmos hangs from the wearer’s ear. These earrings have been awarded the prestigious 'Award of Excellence' for the best piece of jewellery in Canada in 2016 by Canadian Jeweller magazine.

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.
