A good snake bangle with finely engraved detail on it’s head and body. The head is mounted with an oval cabochon garnet with two small cabochon garnet eyes. It wraps around the wrist. The snake motif became popular in the Victorian era after Prince Albert proposed to Queen Victoria with the very first engagement ring, which was in the image of a snake with an emerald-set head. For Victoria, the snake was an emblem of eternal love.
