An amazingly realistic 18ct gold necklace of a snake. It has been enamelled in turquoise blue enamel and has ruby eyes and natural split pearls down it’s head with tiny rose diamonds on either side. I love the way that the tail continues under and over the snake’s head. From the snake’s mouth is suspended a turquoise blue enamel pendant that has a glazed locket and is finely engraved to the reverse. Snake jewellery has long been a symbol of “Eternal love” and this piece is a stunning example. It was made circa 1860.
