    Another Sssnake, this is a necklace made from woven hair.
    Head and tail forming the clasp, hallmarked with ram's head for Paris 1819/1838!
    The figure of snake biting it's tail is metaphoric for infinity. Too used for endless love (awww!)
    This is certainly a love token, not mourning.
    But.... Never been able to wear it!
    Why?
    It scratches the neck awfully!!!
    Adorable though, don't you think so?
    :-)

      I have to ask why is there hair in it ?
    11. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Hi Caperkid! Georgians and Victorians made a lot of sentimental or mourning jewellery :-)
      The snake biting its tail is symbolic for eternity.
      This necklace can be either sentimental, either mourning piece!

      Ok thanks for info. Kyra.
