Gratitude towards mother earth and her wild creatures is apparent in Temple St. Clair’s recent collaboration with Lion Guardians. This organization is dedicated to enacting long-term solutions for peaceful cohabitation between humans and lions across Kenya and Tanzania. Through Lion Guardians, the Maasai herdsmen—who share land with these big cats—are participating in education and conservation efforts.
A percentage of the 18-karat gold Lion Cub Collection, which includes lion-themed pendants and diamond pavé earrings, will go directly to the non-profit. These gold gilded drop earrings ($5,750) center on the majestic face of a lion cub and are accented with a pair of blue moonstones. The collection’s true conversation piece is an 18-karat gold ring ($2,950) with six small diamonds placed on the lion cub’s face—the design is a striking ode to the foundation and the animals it is working to protect. The entire collection can be purchased online.
