Here is an antique piece of jewellery that was recently seen at the Jodhpur gems & jewels palace. This is a 120-130 years old pendant, which was worn by a princess in south India. This beautiful piece is made from tiger nails, a totem believed to protect the wearer from evil eye. Gems & jewels palace has added a very different touch to it by adding high-quality emeralds and rubies on the four strings and the central drop.
