A lion symbolizes strength, honor, and power, and its mane is mixed with rich shades of brown, black, and red. The side of the lion remains motionless, revealing wisdom and solemnity, and is reflected in a shiny 43mm diameter red gold case, which is even more distinguished. Caribbean flamingos are stunning and irresistible with their bright feathers and unique beaks. The flamingo seems to be stretching her neck. The 39 mm diameter red gold case is set with 248 brilliant-cut diamonds, adding a splendid brilliance to this magnificent beauty.
