"Many cultures believe that the Tiger's Eye can give its wearer positive attributes such as patience, focus and perseverance, among others.
"We've selected the tiger as an inspiration as a way to say thank you to the Malaysians who've worked hard to take Malaysia to even greater heights of success," said Habib managing director Datuk Meer Sadik Habib at the launch.
Just like sports teams, Meer said most Malaysians believe that jewellery from other countries are better and are willing to pay top dollar for them.
"We are proud of being a Malaysian brand that can produce world-class jewellery at affordable prices," said Meer.
Present at the launch was Amri Yahya, a member of Harimau Malaya, the national football team.
"I'm honoured to be here as footballers are seldom associated with jewellery and I'm also proud that this collection is named after my team," said Amri.
Amri recently scored a goal against Barcelona and two against Manchester United, two of the most respected football teams in the world.
