Story

More elaborate than the typical British Raj era claw set jewelry, this pendant establishes a new standard. Although jacketed with the “expected” rose gold cap, the artisan took his craft to new heights with gorgeous textured gold leaves and wire work interlaced around three claw set natural rubies. Even the very tip of the claw has a canopy of textured gold ornamented with delicate cannetille florets.
