Victorian Banded Agate Serpent Earrings

$2,800

About

Delightful small earrings in 18 KT gold are graphic spheres of banded agate with the extra charm of serpents surrounding the stone. Each snake is coiled, one facing up and one facing down. They are called Yin and Yang by a friend, yin and yang being harmony and grace. Serpents have been symbolic since ancient history. The Georgians and Victorians knew that they symbolized eternal love. Like an infinity sign or love knot the snakes, coiled around themselves have no beginning or end. The gold value has been tested. These were cufflinks at one time and as they were passed down through the family had been converted to charming earrings . This is common as the later owners makes them wearable for her. They are 13mm in diameter and 21 mm long. They are in excellent condition.
