1890s Enamel Ruby Seed Pearl Gold Snake Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A Victorian snake necklace, with fanciful filigree gold embellishment on the head, adorned with collet set seed pearls and cabochon ruby eyes. The filigree gold embellishing has been completed over royal blue guilloche enamel that covers both the head and heart shaped pendant hanging from the snake's mouth. The snake chain gently graduates in size in a natural camber and is exceptionally well designed giving the necklace a full range of articulation.

This necklace measures 16 inches in length, and has a small hidden clasp that inserts into the head for concealment.
