Coeur De Lion jewellery can be likened to a collection of modern art – all geometric shapes, dazzling colours and interesting materials. Interestingly galleries and museum shops, such as the Guggenheim in New York and London’s Royal Academy stock this fascinating brand and as of August, so will Shade Station! We’ll be welcoming Coeur De Lion Jewellery to our burgeoning e-shelves next month and we hope you’ll take to the sparkling pieces as much as we have…
Launched in the late Eighties by German design duo Carola and Nils Eckrodt, Coeur De Lion Jewellery initially drew inspiration from industrial materials and production waste. From these raw beginnings sprung a collection of globally renowned jewellery pieces, in varying geometric shapes. Unsurprisingly, for the silhouette of her designs, Carola Eckrodt’s, main influence is architecture. Her work is also influenced by modern art and her travels around the world.
Each Coeur De Lion Jewellery design is handmade in Stuttgart, using the finest materials. Eckrodt was one of the first designers to be awarded permission by Swarovski to use their trademark for the Coeur De Lion collection. In addition to Swarovski crystal and semi precious stones, the jewellery is fashioned using a whole breadth of materials including; hand-winded glass, shell, alabaster-glass pearls, eloxated aluminum, precious wood, coral, gold, silver and unique acrylic “paillettes” with mirrored surfaces.
The colours are to die for too… beautiful, bold hues are a hallmark of Coeur De Lion Jewellery, especially within the necklace range. The rings, earrings and bracelets are also rainbow bright, however due to their smaller size they make a slightly more subtle impact!
Coeur De Lion Jewellery is an entire collection of exquisite trinkets, designed with the fashion-forward and quality-conscious woman in mind. This colourful accessories brand will be launching at Shade Station imminently and we’ll be sure to sound a huge fanfare as soon as Coeur De Lion Jewellery hits our website!
