Passion Expressed: Turquoise Snake Bracelet
Sensuously coiled around the wrist a snake motif bracelet of 18k yellow gold wends its way to your heart. The symbol brings with it eons of mystery and intrigue as attributes of wisdom, rebirth and healing surge throughout its very being. The popular Victorian image was a romantic one and was used extensively in jewelry of the time. For the subdued Victorians the snake motif was a vehicle to display passions unspoken.
The entire surface of the hinged bangle bracelet is hand engraved with patterns emulating snake skin alternating with swirls and ocean waves of scrolls. The finely detailed head is set with a series of three natural turquoise cut en cabochon and fiery red ruby cabochon eyes. Although with jaws slightly parted, the sinuous serpent will refrain from causing any harm, as its size will fit most any wrist. A hidden tongue and groove clasp with safety chain ensures security.
