RAJ TIGER CLAW EARRINGS ( Antique Victorian Jewelry Raj Tiger Claw Earrings ): The period of English rule in India became known as the British Raj. All manner of jewelry was produced in India and marketed to the British. This pair of Tiger Claw Earrings (c. 1850-70) are encased in 9 KT Gold jackets, each tip ending in a round gold orb. The claws are suspended from shepard's hook ear wires. Collectors have made these Victorian Indian claws all the rage in fashion again! Much rarer than claw pins, these dainty mementos are an unforgettable example of the Victorian quest for the exotic.

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Claws are 1” long, 1/2” wide at the top.
