Fans of NightRider Jewelry have not missed the obvious similarities between The Lion costume featured on the show and the popular Royal Blood Lion, the signature ring created by artist Nick Ballantyne and added to the NightRider Jewelry Jawbone Collection in 2014. The show's elaborate lion costume features a glittering mask that recreates many of the ring's details from the gleaming gold, to the distinctive sweeps of the lion's mane, the facial expression, and the pattern of the gemstone settings.
