"So excited for the upcoming wedding of this amazing couple Radhika & Anant," Schwartz wrote. "I especially enjoyed working on the vivid yellow diamond Lion brooch for Anant at their pre wedding celebration in Jamnagar . It was spectacular and their love for the animals at their incredible animal sanctuaty #vantara was inspiring . I was truly in owe! It was a once in a lifetime."

In an interview with Forbes in March, Schwartz said that the piece was made with "so much passion and love" and also shared that she and the couple wanted the piece to be bold without being too loud. They also wanted it to represent Ambani's strength and the couple's love for each other.

As for the jewels, they're a combination of diamonds and emeralds.

"This brooch has to be seen in person to truly be appreciated because its body is made of vivid yellow diamonds," Schwartz said. "The mane, though, is made of many different shades of yellow diamonds to give it texture and dimension. There was a 50+ carat colorless white diamond hanging from the mouth and the eyes are made of emeralds, which are known to be a spiritual stone with healing powers and good luck. Also, the lion is standing on a platform made of Asscher cut white diamond which symbolizes grounding.”
