David Webb White Enamel Tiger Brooch


Designed by David Webb in 1965, this 18K gold and white enamel tiger brooch is set with diamonds and emeralds. The 18K gold tiger with white champlevé enamel stripes, pear-shaped cabochon emerald eyes, and round brilliant-cut diamond streak and collar is sculpted turning to prowl forward, with her tail still furled around her. Webb’s design beautifully captures the agility and natural elegance of the rare white tiger to create a sleek and chic jewel.
