The Symbolism of the Lion Ring

The hunters of primitive tribes used the bones and teeth of lions and other defeated predators to make necklaces to show off their manliness and courage.

With the development of civilization, people began to depict animals in jewelry instead of directly using animal body parts to make jewelry. Such jewelry is more beautiful and meaningful. People believe that rings or necklaces combined with  animal symbols and signs can protect themselves from death and misfortune.

The lion is a symbol of the rule and leadership of rulers, outstanding military leaders and important figures. The image of the lion will endow his master with courage, bravery and aristocracy. Images of lions also often appear on family emblems, national emblems, signet animal rings, and later on heirlooms and costume jewelry.
