The ball and claw motif has been used for centuries in metalwork and furniture. Originally representing a dragon's claw the design has been adapted to resemble that of an eagle's talon or sometimes a lion's paw.
For ages, the pearl with its mysterious quality and natural beauty, has inspired legends and folklore in many different cultures.
