Annika Rutlin designer jewellery silver dragon collection

Who doesn't love the symbolism that jewellery holds… both in its giving, for example as a celebratory gift or momento, and in the intrinsic motif of the design, and Annika Rutlin’s latest collection is devoted to the Chinese Year of the Dragon, 10th February 2024 - 28th January 2025.

In the realm of jewelry, certain motifs transcend mere adornment, weaving tales of ancient symbolism and cultural richness. Revered across various cultures the legendary dragon is the only mythical creature out of the twelve animal signs in the Chinese zodiac. It stands as a symbol of power, strength, and good fortune making it the perfect choice for talismanic jewellery as the dragon is often considered a divine creature, associated with protection, benevolence and luck.

Annika endows this dragon with a Scandi slant in line with her Nordic heritage and the design incorporates many Norse dragon features; a serpent style body, like the Midgard serpent, and wings, like Fafnir. A modern, clean-lined form with faceted highlights and the creature encircled in a disc shaped charm to match the other designs in the ‘’Year of’’ series.
