The snake motif has been utilized in jewelry since the Ancients. Long considered as a symbol of royalty and wisdom, it has been documented that Cleopatra was famous for her snake jewelry. Later, the design was popularized during the Victorian Era when Prince Albert famously presented Queen Victoria with an engagement ring in the form of a snake. Representing eternal love, that ring caused a sensation, and snake jewelry has been a fashion statement ever since.

This example is in wonderful condition, with no enamel loss or damage! Deep cobalt blue enamel has been applied between the golden rings on the body, with a bright green patch on the head and two ruby eyes. The shape of the beast is very elegant, with the head dipping up, or down, either way you prefer to wear it. A classic piece in the finest form, you'll want to wear this day after day!
