Flexible 18K yellow Gold snake necklace adorned with white old cut Diamonds and Rubies.  This piece can be worn as a bracelet as well.

As early as the year 1900, very few people could afford gold and in particular such intricately shaped and produced snakes adorned with diamonds and precious stones. This is a rare luxury item produced for a few, and snakes were the main subject of the Victorian period, because the empress herself loved snake jewelry and was wearing them often. The snake had a particular meaning during queen Victorias time, the meaning of endless life.
