Help me find the name/picture of this antique tool

I'm looking for an object I once saw a picture of. It was an antique tool that was, I think, described as a japanese jade vise, or something similar. It was rectangular in shape, and consisted of a number of stacked wooden wedges that could be slid in and out in relation to one another to form an opening in which a gem could be securely held by the pressure of the wedges.

Could it be a variation on a Ring Clamp with Wedge, Wooden?
