All three pieces marked 18k; total weight 23.7 grams; 16 diamonds and 8 green gemstones
Item # 012IEV10L
An exquisite custom suite of a necklace and matching earrings cast in the form of tigers and embellished with green round-cut gemstones and diamonds, this lighthearted set is as intricate as it is playful. The cheery figures of tigers are remarkably detailed with a level of craftsmanship that is truly noteworthy. These are embellished with black enamel stripes.
Each piece is executed in 18k gold and the surfaces have been beautifully chased, chiseled and filed to create lovely texture throughout - note the pair of tigers on the necklace are solid cast and not hollow, resulting in an overall total gross weight of 23.8 grams.
The set is an unusual and rather spectacular find, a fine design with superb workmanship that will stand the test of time.
