As early as the 1980s, young designer Carola Eckrodt already experimented with industrial pieces and used them to create jewelry. A famous couturier was impressed by her unconventional creations at first sight. He purchased the entire first collection – which marked the beginning of the COEUR DE LION success story. Today, jewelry by Carola Eckrodt can be found in all corners of the globe. Together with her design team, she has followed her own vision for thirty years: graphically reduced designs meet finest quality materials and unusual color combinations again and again in new ways.
