Overview:

Finely detailed antique Edwardian era snake bracelet (circa 1907), crafted in 18k yellow gold.

Rose cut diamonds graduate in size and total an estimated 0.12 carats (estimated at I-J color and I1 clarity). The box cut rubies surround the eyes in a semi-circle pattern and total an estimated 0.50 carats.

The snake features lifelike scale detail to the bracelet, terminating to the snake head - the diamonds and rubies add color and a subtle shimmer. The lithe snake is a hard-to-find larger size (7 1/2 inches) and easily slips on and off the wrist with the tongue snapping securely in the snakes mouth. For centuries the snake has represented faithfulness and eternal love. The snake is a centuries old reference to eternal love. The bracelet has a softness to the gold with a warm buttery patina. We have not cleaned the bracelet to preserve the patina and collector value. The underside of the snakes head is engraved "1-1-907"

The bracelet is in good original condition.
