Antique Victorian Garnet Gold Snake Necklace


I was thrilled when I came across this fabulous Victorian garnet snake necklace that was handcrafted around 1870 in England. The wonderfully detailed clasp is done in yellow gold with pink, white and green gold leaves and swirling overlays. It features four garnets, one is a juicy teardrop shaped cabochon in it’s head that measures 12.5 x 8.5 mm, and one is an oval cabochon cut in the heart drop that measures 5.4 x 6 mm, it also has two little cabochon garnet eyes. The back of the drop feature reveals space for a precious keepsake behind beveled crystal, it was doubtless originally meant to hold a lock of hair. This necklace would fit a neck of about 14.5 inches at the most, and is made to sit up high with the heart dangling, choker style. I adore this highly detailed snake choker necklace, I know you will, too!
