Tiger's eye is a mystical looking gemstone that resembles a cat's (domestic and exotic) eye. It is covered with colored stripes of red, brown and golden yellow. It has a silky, lustrous appearance and is typically described as a brown stone with bands of light. It is very beautiful to look at and simply gazing into it can calm your mind.

Rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets can vary greatly in cost. I've been able to buy a bracelet for about $5 but have seen them priced over $30. You could always make your own and consecrate your own stones. If you use this stone in magickal jewelry (jewelry worn in rituals or that gives you a specific energy for money, luck, protection, etc) then it would be best buy the stones and craft something yourself. If you at least consecrate it on your own it will become a part of your energy and be more effective when worn.

If your kitchen has a window in front of the sink place the stone there so you can see it as you're washing dishes or place it in the bathroom by your bathtub where you can see and/or reach it.
