German jewellery brand Coeur de Lion were named "Jewellery Brand of the Year 2014" at the UK Watch and Jewellery awards. They then went on to win the German Design Award Special 2016 plus the German Brand Award 2016.
Handmade in Germany, Coeur de Lion was started by Carola Eckrodt when she started her company with her husband in 1987, after designing and creating her own jewellery previously. In their first year they presented their first collection at Munich where Hanns Friedrich, Joan Collins' designer bought the entire collection. Ten years later Carola created the wonderful GEO CUBE Collection. This is a design classic and has been stocked by many Museum shops. It remains the best-seller here at Jools - with the ever-changing colours, our customers come back season after season for a new colour.
We LOVE Coeur de Lion jewellery. We have stocked Coeur de Lion for a number of years at Carathea and our shop, Jools, and it is now a firm favourite with our customers. It is a huge hit with men to buy as gifts for their wife or girlfriend - it always goes down very well.
Coeur de Lion regularly discontinue particular colour-ways so it's a good idea to ensure you buy matching pieces whilst they are available. We will always try our best to get the missing piece you are after but this is not always possible.
Care of your Coeur de Lion Jewellery
As with most jewellery, Coeur de Lion pieces with alloyed parts, including the best quality gold plating, are sensitive to perfume, hairspray and all products containing propellant gas. This also applies to the skin's natural protective acidic layer, which varies from woman to woman. Coeur de Lion recommend removing all jewellery before applying perfume or other cosmetics. Please also ensure that you remove all items which may come into contact with water, before washing or bathing to avoid possible water damage.
Corola insists on materials that are versatile, in shape and colour, but must also not show wear and tear so must endure well. This includes polaris resin, Swarovski crystal, hand-finished two-tone glass, real nappa leather, and synthetically coloured tiger's eye which has been a firm favourite in recent years.
Clip-on earrings and earring posts are made of nickel-free rhodium-plated brass. Ear wires, ball studs and cube studs are made of nickel-free sterling silver. Also all fasteners, extension chains and eyelets are made of nickel-free stainless steel.
All Coeur de Lion necklaces use nylon-coated steel wire predominantly, as this has the high durability of steel wire and lies flat on the throat with the nylon thread.
