Antique Victorian Diamond Snake Bangle Ruby Eyes 2.1ct Diamond
A grand antique snake bangle from the late 19th Century lined with nineteen sparkling rose cut diamonds graduating down the tail and head. The largest weighs approx. 0.50ct and is crowned between two pink ruby eyes with a total of approx. 2.1ct across the front.
Serpent jewellery became increasingly popular in the Victorian era after Prince Albert gifted the young queen Victoria a serpent ring during their courtship. The snake came to symbolise an enduring love and friendship with its coiled shape representing eternity.
The band has a fabulous, coiled rope design and is modelled entirely in a high-carat yellow gold. A remarkable antique find with a good weight and a dazzling collection of diamonds.
