Guardian ring in sterling silver or 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 oxidized sterling silver, 10k gold, or 14k gold.
sterling silver: $95
10k gold: $950
14k gold: $1,425
The rectangular base on which the guardian lounges measures 3/4" long by 1/2" wide. Lion measures 1/2" tall.
