Guardian ring in oxidized sterling silver or 10k gold
Lion statues have adorned the entrances of temples, palaces, and tombs throughout the world. They act as guardians in locations as disparate in time and distance as the Forbidden City in Beijing, the New York Public Library, and the necropolis of Saqqara in Egypt, on which this ring is loosely based.
Originally hand-carved in wax, this heavy, sculptural piece is cast in your choice of solid sterling silver or 10k yellow gold.
sterling silver: $95
10k gold: $800
The rectangular base on which the guardian lounges measures 3/4" long by 1/2" wide. Lion measures 1/2" tall.
I make each piece to order, so please allow 2-3 weeks for shipment.
