Pearl Snake Bangle

Pearl Snake Bangle

Emblematic of wisdom, power and infinite love, snake jewelry has bewitched jewelry connoisseurs since ancient times, climaxing in popularity during the lengthy reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901). The Queen selected a serpent bracelet to wear for her Accession Council on June 30, 1837Bohemian gold (gold-washed vermeil)–perhaps a symbolic proclamation of her affinity with the omnipotent serpent.

Fashioned of 15k gold, our elegant bangle features a smooth, flexible body partially incised with gold scales. Seven creamy pearls of excellent luster crown her head and rose-cut diamonds form her eyes. Fittingly, the bangle reveals a secret inscription: AP from PE, Xmas 1902.
