Queen Victoria put snake jewelry under the fashion spotlight when her husband-to-be, Prince Albert, bought her a snake engagement ring, with an emerald (her birthstone) embedded into it. The Victorians associated the snake motif with eternal love. The first Queen to be regularly seen out and about, Victoria’s style was emulated throughout the world and you can still find beautiful antique snake jewelry today.

A sensual 9ct brooch of a snake curving around a lolly topped bar. A very sweet example with a smiling expression, pink gold, measuring 1.60” in length. Would make a wonderful 1.25” chain extension.


Materials & Features: 9k gold

Age/Origin: Victorian, c. 1850

Measurements: 1.60" in length, 3.22 grams

Condition: Excellent condition. Would make a great q.25" chain extension.
