The Tiger, not the lion, is the king of beasts throughout Eastern Asia, and is a symbol of royalty and fearlessness. Tigers are associated with power, ferocity, passion, beauty and speed. We've captured the majestic bearing of the tiger in this etched stainless steel pendant.

Hand etched curved stainless steel pendant hangs on an adjustable waxed cotton cord with sliding knots so you can adjust it to suit your neckline from choker to full length. The electro etching process sometimes creates a pebbled texture which resembles ancient artifacts recovered from the earth. But unlike most metals Stainless Steel will NOT tarnish, corrode, rust, or turn your skin green. It is the most durable metal.

☀Photos 1-3 are of the EXACT Large pendant you will receive.
☀☀A card with the description of the symbol is included with purchase.

PENDANT SIZE: Large - 1" x 1 1/4" rectangle (2.5 cm x 3.1 cm)
CORD LENGTH: Adjustable, maximum 29" (73.7cm)♥
JEWELLERY CARE- Remove jewellery before showering, swimming and similar activities.

♥If you would prefer a set length, such as 16", 18", etc. just send us a convo. and we will add metal crimps and a spring ring clasp to the cord.

Our steel has been etched with an eco-friendly process which does not use any acid or other toxic chemicals. Salt water will naturally etch stainless steel over a long time, we have sped up the process by using a few volts of electricity. No toxic fumes; hydrogen and oxygen are released into the air. Galvanic or electrolytic etching was originally developed by printmakers in the mid 1800's as a non-toxic process for etching their printing plates.

Each jewellery piece is HAND MADE by us from beginning to end. We apply a resist on a sheet of stainless steel, electro etch, saw by hand, file, and polish. A black patina is applied to the recessed areas to enhance the pattern. Many pieces are curved using a hammer and block. The electro etching process can impart a pebbled texture, which we feel only enhances the hand crafted quality of our work.

Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking and capable of great sympathy. They are very competitive and aren’t afraid to pursue their goals. They have an air of authority that prompts others to fall in line, which is exactly how they like it. They often feel things more intensely than others, the latter quality being both good and bad.

Frequently asked questions about TigersandDragons

☀Stainless Steel - To protect the black patina and wax coating on the cord, remove all jewellery before swimming, showering, and similar activities.Long term exposure to moisture can affect jewellery.

☀Brass - Avoid exposure to hairspray, water &soap. Brass will darken over time and look more antique. Dab a tiny amount of vinegar on a cloth and wipe the brass to make it golden and shiny again. A jewellery polishing cloth also works well for polishing brass.

NO. Since we are in Canada, we are not registered for VAT, and so this tax is not included in our prices. If any of our listings or shipping rates state "VAT included (where applicable)", this is because Etsy's programmers have recently added this to their web-shop platform. Unfortunately this is misleading and incorrect, but we are unable to remove it from our listings.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this issue. Our shop has been open since 2009 and we have received very positive reviews from our European customers.
