Gucci pays homage to one of its most defining symbols, the Lion Head, in a new collection of fine jewelry. Three interpretations of the feline motif, featuring different gemstones, appear both as stud earrings and pendant necklaces within the line.
One design is worked in 18kt white gold and encrusted with diamonds. A sparkling aquamarine stone is held within the lion’s teeth. Said to inspire truth and trust, the blue color of aquamarine is thought to be calming and cleansing. It is also considered to be the birthstone for those born in March.
A second version of the Lion Head is crafted in 18kt yellow gold. It has diamond-set eyes and an amethyst clutched between its teeth. The birthstone of February, amethyst is meditative, soothing, and its violet color is believed to promote balance and peace.
Another 18kt yellow gold Lion Head completes the collection. This design also has diamond-set eyes, but features a chromo diopside gemstone in its mouth. The deep forest green tone of the distinctive jewel is said to be restorative, and capable of healing a damaged heart.
