Description: Victorian designed sterling silver large griffin whimsy ring. The griffin, half lion, half eagle, has symbolized guardianship since medieval times. The griffin has the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. Seen as guardians of secretly buried wealth, the griffin evolved from a ferocious animal of antiquity to become a symbol of strength and valor.

Using a combination of techniques from the past and present these fabulous designs have been brought back to life in such a way that even the original tool marks hand engraved over a 100 years ago are left intact and preserved as part of the history and charm of your ring.
