This dramatic jewel is of important size and museum quality, it also has an edgy modern presence that belies its 150 years age.The serpent throughout time has been associated with danger, ritual and sexuality. Starting with Eve in the Garden of Eden, Minoan Snake Priestesses through to Freudian psychology.
In jewellery the symbolism of the serpent is used to portray both sexual power as well as protection of the wearer, confidence and eternity.
Very good
