A Leo herself, Delphine dreamed up the Boheme Le Grand Lion charm, waking up one morning with this lion sharp in her mind’s eye.
This is the oxidized silver version with 18k gold bail of her original solid 18k gold Lion.
She envisioned a powerful creature peacefully gazing into the distance, both watchful and meditative, its lush and wild mane swaying in the breeze slightly off the medallion frame.
Delphine hand sculpted the majestic cat in one setting at her jeweler's bench and crafted it out of solid 18k gold, always recycled, so you can feel the comforting heft of Le Lion standing guard over you as it swings on the chain around your neck.
A fierce protector of its family, the lion is a symbol of strength, courage, fearlessness and inner wisdom.
In astrology, it embodies Leo, and the strong energy of the sun, the ruling celestial body for this sign. In tarot, it graces the strength card, and is an auspicious sign of inner power and our ability of overcome anything thrown our way.
Capable of much feared wrath when necessary, this powerful and empowering archetype revered since ancient times and across cultures is a mighty talisman to add to your charm story. As always with Delphine's jewels, she encourages you to take the meaning that resonates with you and leave the rest.
This jewel was hand crafted in the heart of Manhattan's jewelry district. The roughness of the background texture is intentional, a nice contrast to the smooth shine of the lion, giving the piece the well-weathered look of a found treasure.
The charm is a large size at 28/30mm wide/high, and it hangs on a 5mm hoop. It is about the size of a €2 coin, and larger than a US quarter.
The Triangle Clicker and Boheme Onyx Chain the Petit Lion hangs from on the 2nd and 4th picture are sold separately. The Boheme Erica chain in solid 18k yellow gold too.
