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 a popular romantic token during the 19th Century and symbolised a wonderful combination of love, loyalty and friendship, with their coiled shape representing eternity.
The band has a fabulous, coiled rope design and is modelled entirely in a high-carat yellow gold with hallmarks on the outside indicating it was made in Egypt. It's a remarkable antique find with a good weight and a dazzling collection of diamonds.
We recommend you insure for £4,000. We can provide a written Valuation on completion of the sale.
