General Information:

  • US Size: Between an 8.50 and 8.75 (the ring’s ovular shape makes it difficult to pinpoint a size on the mandrel)
  • Total Carat Weight: Estimated assessment of 0.26 ctw
  • Total Precious Metal Weight: 5.27 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 14k yellow gold
  • Dimensions: 19.68 mm north to south on the ring face; ~7.71 mm rise from the finger (depth) at the highest point on the ring face (top of the lion’s nose); shoulders taper from ~6.25 mm width where the mane terminates to 4.70 mm width at the base of the shank; back of the band/shank is about 1.28 mm depth off of the finger
  • Weight: A very impressive 8.20 grams
  • Markings: 14K
  • Era: Given the setting style, shoulder details, the construction techniques of the mounting, and the stone faceting and proportions, we estimate that the ring dates to between the very late 1950s to the 1970s. Even so, this aesthetic has hung onto trends throughout the 20th century. Without knowing an exact provenance, we cannot ascertain a more precise date range beyond what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enables us to determine.
  • Buyer Notes: This statement ring is very bold in size, sparkle, weight and motif, and yet is one of those staple pieces that remarkably goes with everything. It’s an expression of courage and love, with a fighting spirit to match its sparkle. The band is ever so slightly out of round and is somewhat oval in shape. This means that its unisex size ranges between an 8.50 and an 8.75 but cannot be established any more specifically than this. Being that the band is plain, it is able to be resized by your preferred jeweler post-purchase.

The Story:

Bold and deeply symbolic, this vintage gold ring features an intricate and sculptural lion theme and a trio of dazzling full cut diamonds. With a billowing mane that whips down the tapered shoulders, and a fully articulated three dimensional silhouette, this lion is a wearable work of art. This ring is large, boasts a lovely weight against the finger, and is not for the timid. This figural jewel is desirably high relief, and appears to have been cast-molded, so that the features of the creature are precise and natural. The details are crisp, giving the lion expression and firm visual dynamism.

The trilogy of diamonds present in this ring are each modern round brilliants, bright white and extraordinarily sparkly. Their scale is proportionate to the heft of the ring itself, and are a bit more sizable than many lion and diamond rings on the market. When paired with the brightly polished, buttery yellow gold of the lion’s fabrication, the stones add insane luminosity, bringing interest to the stylized lion head and spirit to the ring ‘in action’.

The lion motif has been used in jewelry since ancient times and across almost all cultures and spiritualities, as it is commonly a reference to royalty, courage and valour. Lion jewelry is believed to bless wearers with stealth, strength and bravery, and is likewise a symbol of divinity and unmatched majesty. While lions are indeed as fierce and protective of the ones they love, they are also messengers of compassion and tenderness and are known for their affectionate caretaking.

Though big and striking, this ring is versatile: it is an utterly perfect piece for solo wear, a daring alternative for a diamond wedding band, or even a fearless option for an unmatched engagement ring. Stack or pair for a fun boost to your jewelry wardrobe.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
