Stand back, the details on this set are pure fire. Check it out - ferocious sharp teeth, eyes squinted and ears tucked back...ooh, the intensity is real! Deep settings for the teardrop shaped eyes enhance the drama by reflecting the color and glow. On the underside of the necklace, our main kitty even even has a furry pattern etched into the metal, and each earring cat has tiny whiskers. And yes, flames at the head and tail. Super sparkly pave crystals pack the last punch, and you're opponent is done. You've won the battle with your wild fierce style.
1970-80's gold plated metal with crystals. Necklace 16" long with box clasp. Earrings 1.5" long on clip backs. Beautiful condition.
Big cats have been a popular a design motif since jewelry and art began, symbolizing guardianship, royalty, and power. Dramatic big cats elicit a sense of majesty and power that's been recognized by cultures around the world for millennia. Leopards and lions specifically appear a lot in ancient Roman art. You won't find either cat in the Italian wild today but thousands of years ago, Panthera leo and Panthera pardus had a much larger range but hunting and human expansion squeezed out of Europe.
