In the animal world the lion is the most magnificent creature. This regal animal is given an appropriate representation in this glorious lion torsade necklace by CINER. Ciner, known for its high end costume jewelry, created this statement necklace with similar skill and quality as though it was a piece of fine jewelry. It is a torsade choker necklace. It is chunky and massive. The figural section is in the middle of the necklace but the torsade
can be worn to the side or any other creative position imagined. The center section has two lion heads done in the form of "door knockers". Each gold tone lion is completely encrusted with pave rhinestones that is dotted with small onyx like beads. The eyes are done in large glass amber stones and the cats are gnawing on a thick rimmed circle. The lions have a double collar that is covered with larger rhinestones. The lions are highly sculptural and detailed. They are dimensional. When looked at head on they appear to have a slight grin and seem to be happy and not menacing. The middle ring turns and it not stationary. There is a double strand of black glass beads connected to the creatures on each side. The beads are about the size of a large pea. The strands are double knotted. The necklace closes with a large gold tone hook that fits into a large "eye." Both the hook and eye are marked "CINER" as is the under side of each lion section. The necklace is in wonderful condition with a little plate wear on the underside, not seen when worn. The necklace measures 16 1/4" long, the center figural piece is 3 1/4" in length. This necklace is absolutely striking and stunning. However, do not be afraid when wearing this torsade. Even though these creatures are known as "kings of the forest," these two are stately but very friendly. Sort of like the lion from the Wizard of Oz, following that yellow brick road!
