This silver necklace pays homage to the protective emblem of the Angkor – the guardian lion statues flanking the entrances to the sacred sanctuaries of the temples.
A symbol used by Khmer kings to represent courage and a purported guardian of the sacred, the lion is carved and cast in sterling silver and suspended on silver choker. This necklace makes for a good conversation piece in any setting.
