You either love these or hate them but they were a tradition in Scotland and grouse is edible - strictly controlled. The story is that the owner of the estate would give one of these to his wife on their wedding day, hence the ring. I have never seen one without the ring. I have antique ones also, superbly set in engraved silver. This one is by Miracle and marked as such. They produced reproduction Scottish jewelry in the 40s and 50s, nothing like the real thing, but people do collect it. This is first one grouse claw I have seen that they produced and it is nice, with bagpipes. The wear below the metal is natural to the piece and magnified by the camera. 3 inches in length, can be worn by a man or woman, on the kilt or jacket
