T he Lioness wears a crown of precious gems to signify her lofty status as the chief huntress for her pride. Her keen eyes are set with emeralds and the face expresses watchful attention. While still keeping with Art Deco geometric styling, the contours of this ring are softer and more feminine. Just like her mate, the lioness also has an all seeing eye on her brow – in this case set aflame with an orange sapphire. The wearer of this piece will discover a secret: on the inside of the ring there is an ornament that allows one to see right through the emerald eyes of the lioness.

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.
