Sterling Silver Over Brass Etruscan Lion Earrings

The lion has had a positive depiction on cultures for hundreds of thousands of years, reflecting strength in conjunction with beauty, as well as bravery. Often depicted as the “king of the jungle”, it has been used as a symbol of royalty, from many ancient civilizations from: Pre-Egyptian, Byzantine, Roman, Greek, Middle Eastern, Indian, Chinese, and even currently as the central depiction of English and French heraldry. Once found in Africa, Eurasia, India, and in the America’s, as far down as Peru, the wild lions can now only be found in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and an endangered remnant population in India. In this 14th collection of Alberto Juan lion jewelry we celebrate the depiction of the wild African lion on Pre-Roman Etruscan civilization as well as the more modern cave lion’s royal style.
