About

A fine antique Egyptian 2.05 carat diamond and 0.03 carat natural ruby, 22 carat yellow gold bangle/armlet in the form of a snake; an addition to our antique jewelry collections

This fine Egyptian bangle has been crafted in the form of a snake in 22k yellow gold.

The snake's head is embellished with eight old Dutch cut diamonds graduating in size.

The head is further ornamented with two old round mixed cut natural rubies which represent the snake's eyes.

The tapering, wiggling tail is also embellished with fifteen old Dutch cut diamonds, diminishing in size towards the tail end.

This impressive hallmarked* bangle has a textured finish to reproduce the snake's skin.

This versatile 22 karat yellow gold bangle is flexible in nature, and may be worn as either a bangle or armlet, dependant on personal taste.

The Egyptian snake bracelet is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.

This bangle has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 22k gold.

Note *This item has been dated with reference to the 'snake' form and old cut diamonds. Hallmarking was introduced in Egypt in 1916, and this piece has been later hallmarked in 1920, post production.
