Snake jewelry came into serious vogue in the early Victorian period and one could argue that serpent-themed baubles have never really gone out of style since. Aside from being a fashion statement (which it was in the 19th century and remains to this day), the coiled serpent is also employed as a symbol of the cycle of life, eternity, and love without end. This 1930s coiled snake with is rendered in 14k gold. The serpent's tail loops elegantly around its neck and the head sparkles with a .05ct brilliant cut diamond.
