The Coeur de Lion line is designed by Carola Hiersemann-Eckrodt and handmade in her Stuttgart, Germany workshop. Coeur de Lion® fuses clean designs, old-world craftsmanship, high technology and, above all, the finest materials obtainable to achieve its very distinctive look. Consultant for Swarovski®, Carola uses Swarovski® crystals exclusively for her own collections. It is not rare that she introduces new Swarovski® shapes for a limited time, before anyone else. The stainless steel and aluminum parts she favors as her metal of choice are expensively treated through eloxation and other high-tech methods, and thickly plated in silver, rhodium and 24-karat gold to last a lifetime. The acrylic parts she designs and special order through master artisans, add a rich dimension to her contemporary creative approach.
