    A suite of jewels - or parure - comprising a full tiger claw necklace, and a pair of tiger claw earrings.

    The item recently came out from a safe deposit box and had remained untouched since 1949.

    It appears it was purchased on the 15th of December 1919 at the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy Ceylon. It consists of a necklace and 2 earrings. There are 12 claws on the necklace and one on each earring for a total of 14 tiger claws.

    Anyone an expert on this kind of jewelryor a collector who can tell me more about this jewelry.

      Absolutely stunning piece ... most likely the metal is either gold or silver and its British raj India piece ..with what looks like genuine tiger claw ...
