Sensuously coiled upon itself, this antique snake motif brooch insinuates itself into your psyche. 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 can be found in examples of every variety in jewelry of the mid to late 1800s. For subdued Victorians, the snake motif was a vehicle to display passions unspoken.
The entire surface is encrusted with pavé set natural Persian turquoise cabochons. Three dimensional and rounded, its body forms a jaunty knot of color.
The finely detailed and textured head is created in 10k rose gold and rose gold over silver and set with fiery red ruby eyes. A forked tongue peeps out below.
Can't you just see this on a camel hair coat lapel or linen ecru jacket? Even hanging from a chain he would steal the show.
