Strong & Courageous

A majestic Georgian chalcedony intaglio featuring a griffin passant with wings aloft.

Set in platinum with a halo of modern brilliant diamonds and blue sapphires.

Why we love it

The carving, the CARVING! so so good.

The symbolism. Sooooo much symbolism!

The griffin fuses the lion, king of beasts, and the eagle, king of birds.  As such griffin is a symbol of power, might, the majestic, nobility, and leadership. Being a creature of great strength, in various myths, the beast protects priceless treasures from thieves, so griffin also symbolizes protection.

Medieval lore has it that the griffin chooses a single mate for its lifetime. When one griffin dies, the other one lives on alone and without taking on another mate. Here, griffins are a symbol of fidelity, loyalty, marriage, and lasting love.

As a spirit animal griffin is a protector. As a totem griffin is the bringer of scholarly enlightenment.

As a power animal the griffin provides brute strength and mental agility. Griffin is as strong as eight Lions, and one hundred Eagles-there are stories of the creature carrying away full-size oxen and horses to its nest. The mythic beast supports you when you are facing rigorous tasks requiring vigor but also when you must steel yourself against an emotional storm.

When you’re in a situation requiring a leap of faith, invoke the griffin whose intimate connection with the skies via the eagle makes it the ideal being to support you when you must override tumultuous emotions with cool intellect and just jump right into a situation or relationship with both feet.

Strikes me with a griffin about your person you’ve got your bases covered.


Flown away home.
