Bengal Tiger Necklace
The Bengal Tiger necklace is handmade with red, green and gold coated Japanese glass beads. It celebrates the largest of the cats, the Bengal Tiger, whose latin name is Panthera Tigris Tigris or Panther Tiger Tiger! The necklace comes in three sizes - a choker (small), necklace (medium) and pendant (long) and each is available with three charms and, of course, the letters of the alphabet.
Personalising this beautiful piece with a friend's initials, as well as planting 10 Mangrove trees - every Bengal Tiger plants 10 trees and comes with a planting certificate and gift card in a fabric bag - is a wonderful gift that gives back to the planet as well as being personalised and quite unique.
If you really want to splash out there is also the Bengal Tiger Anklet!
Charms which come with the Bengal Tiger include:-
- the Arctic Fox (18K gold filled)
- the Sea Star (18K gold plated)
- the Turquoise Coral (18K gold filled with turquoise inlay)
The Bengal Tiger
The Bengal Tiger grows up to 3 meters (10 feet) in length and weighs up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds) or a third of a tonne. A bengal Tiger can eat up to a 10th of its body weight, 30 kilograms of meat, in a single meal - that would be like a man sitting down to eat a 20 pound hamburger (half a pound is considered a large meal with some chips!).
To give you an idea of their power, this enormous animal can jump over 10 meters (33 feet), longer than a London double-decker bus! Not surprisingly these hunters pose a considerable threat to those who trespass on their territory including humans.
Today there are less than 4,000 of these wonderful creatures left in the wild, living primarily in the Indian sub-continent where there are diminishing forests (caused by deforestation to make way for agriculture) and large and growing numbers of people. Hunting and conflict with humans in a shrinking environment where wildlife, the Tigers source of food, too is diminishing.
The Bengal Tiger is made by hand and made to order. The combinations of blue, turquoise, emerald green and gold Japanese glass beads are unique to each band although the style of each is the same.
The sizes of Bengal Tigers are:-
Choker - 34 cms (13.5 inches)
Necklace - 41 cms (16 inches)
Pendant - 46 cms (18 inches)
Each Bengal Tiger is connected at the back with two links of 14K gold filled paper chain chain and a lobster clasp which is also 14K gold filled.
