Flexible green snake necklace made from 18K gold, black rhodium sterling silver, full-cut diamonds, pink tourmalines, ruby eyes and citrine. The body parts are made from the thorax parts of the scarabae beetle. This necklace can be used as bracelet.
The scarabae beetle was holy in ancient Egypt and China because of its remarkable reproduction process. Each piece is carefully selected according to colour and is shaved to thickness and then glued on. The colour of each piece is extremely fast and will last for several hundred years. It will also change from green to blue depending on the light. This is an exotic and magic set of jewellery which requires great skills to produce.
All done by hand at Lotus Arts de Vivre.
