Raj Era Tiger Claw Earrings

About Details
1858 to 1947 marked Britain's colonial rule over India (a period often described as the "Raj", the Hindi word for "reign" or "king"). European and American jewelry markets at this time were populated with accessories that made use of India's dense wildlife population. Elephant hair and tiger claws were particularly popular elements used in this exotic souvenir jewelry. These c. 1880 tiger claws are partially encased in 9k rose gold. The earrings measure 1 3/4" long with a scalloped detail at the top of the mounting and new 14k gold ear wires.
