Each item in the Lion Collection has been handcrafted by artisans in Florence. Starting from a handmade sketch, a wax sculpture of the object is created using the ancient lost-wax technique, which is then replicated in brass. After the final hand polishing, the brass object is gold or silver plated through a galvanic process. The gold or silver used for the plating is of the highest quality without any nickel or cadmium, ensuring durability, scratch resistance and a completely hypoallergenic product.
The use of symbolism has been an important part of adornment since the ancient times. Animals were often used as amulets for both their protective and special ability features. One of the most striking and admired animals in nature, the lion, has become a symbol of nobility, strength and courage.
