A Sterling (hallmarked) silver snake bracelet with amber on the head,
very large snake earrings also Sterling and a wonderful decorated silver (Sterling, halmarked) ring. The SNAKE or serpent was the symbol of royalty and deity in early Egyptian society. Victorian jewelry often used an entwined snake to symbolize infinity and eternal love. Over the years the snake has also come to symbolize sexuality, rebirth and wisdom.

While serpent motif jewelry goes far back in history, it's popularity really spread starting in the 1840s and peaked between then and the 1860s . The snake is timeless and unique in both it's art and symbolism.
Here three very simply lovely jewel examples of this snake.

    These are beautiful, and I've never seen earrings like these!!! But I don't think that I'd wear these on a first date. I love the bracelet, especially. : )

    AR8Jason, yes of course you are right. As described above indeed the snake was the symbol of royalty and deity in early Egyptian society and also with the Egyptian revival. Thanks for your valuable comment.

    PhilDavidAlexanderMorris neither did I but in a antique vintage collection it seems to me they should not lack because it's a much seen topic for jewelry both now and in the past. In any case thanks for your comment and loving.
