About

Beacon Hill Jewelers Presents:

A very dramatic, victorian era enameled Snake form brooch in 18 karat yellow gold. Displaying the body of an encircled snake set with diamond eyes, this snake boasts beautiful richly colored red, blue, and black enameling over 18 karat yellow gold.

Beautifully crafted, the snake features gold wire work to separate the different enamel colors, a technique known as cloisonné. The body of the snake features richly colored scales of blue on on the perimeter, then rich black, followed by a vivid intense red for the center scales. The superbly crafted head of the snake features uniquely stylized blue and black enameling, along with an open mouth displaying a black enameled tongue. The eyes of the snake are set with a pair of very fine quality antique rose cut diamonds weighing approximately 0.06 carats combined.

Brooch measures 34mm in diameter, and weighs 9 grams.
