Wendy Brandes 18K Yellow Gold Snake Tiara with South Sea Pearl, Diamonds, Rubies

About the Item

Two twisting 18K yellow gold and diamond snakes kiss in the center of this darkly romantic serpentine tiara, forming a heart that embraces a large, baroque South Sea pearl. In creating this piece, Wendy paid as much attention to function as to form: the tiara is engineered with space for hair pins that will secure it for a full day of celebration. This wearable art was created in New York City by our top-notch goldsmiths. The design is the latest addition to Wendy's snake-themed Queen of Scots Collection. That motif was inspired by Mary Queen of Scots, cousin to Elizabeth I. Elizabeth's advisors referred to Mary as "the bosom serpent" -- close to the queen of England, and dangerous. More details below: 18K yellow gold totaling 2.3 oz, satin finish. 18K blackened rose gold. 12.8 x 14.3 mm South Sea Pearl. 76 white diamonds, totaling 1/2 carat. 9 points of rubies. Made in New York City. One-of-a-kind. Worn by Victoria's Secret Angel and supermodel Elsa Hosk in Paper Magazine.
