A Rubeus dialogue between opposite energies.
The founders of Rubeus, Viktor and Natalya Bondarenko, asked one of the most reputed jewellery designers of our time, Frédéric Mané, to develop a concept starting from these two exclusive creations.
Referencing neo-baroque aesthetics, he saw in the lion face nature's exuberance at its fullest, the blinding sunshine light, the Yang energy; while the smooth, curving lines of the rubellites' Yin-cut provided the impulse for the design of the second part of the collection as a tribute to the quiet and soft moonlight.
Brought to life by the world's best cutters and jewellers, the Rubeus Lion collection creates harmony between antagonistic yet complementary forces.
The birth of a masterpiece: the Lion necklace
The birth of a masterpiece: the Lion ring
Symbolising the Yang positivity, the first chapter of the majestic Rubeus Lion collection is a hymn to natural radiance.
Like an intricate and luminous mosaic, a sunray motive of sapphires, rubies and diamonds surrounds the beautiful central golden garnet in the stylized form of a lion's face.

Matching the exquisite design of the Lion necklace's central element, its glorious radiance is echoed by an equally precious ring and pair of earrings.

The Rubeus Lion collection balances the magnificent strength of the Lion set paying homage to the lunar peacefulness of the Yin.
In a vortex of rubies, sapphires and diamonds, a deep-pink rubellite cut in the shape of a stylized Yin sits as a precious moment of tranquillity in the midst of perpetual motion.

The inherent smoothness of the Yin symbol inspired also the refined oval cut of this ring's centerpiece, guarded by two watchful yellow citrine lions.
