Estate Sterling Large Diamond Snake Pendant Necklace 37"
The snake has been a powerful image since the Victorian era and continues to be popular even in modern jewelry. It has been an inspiration for jewelry design for ages, often used to symbolize eternity, everlasting love, life and protection.
An outstanding Estate snake pendant necklace! Crafted in sterling silver, this bold piece is comprised of a diamond encrusted snake pendant which hangs from a long open link chain. Adorning the entire front surface of the large snake is an array of pavé set Single Cut accent diamonds which line the snake in a scale-like pattern. The body of the slithering serpent curves and twists finishing at its overlapped head in the center, and two larger bezel set stones dot each eye. The sterling pendant has a darkened silver finish and hangs from a teardrop shaped bail accented with four additional diamonds. The bail, which loops through the final curl in the snakes' tail, attaches to the extra long chain which is comprised of an alternating pattern of darkened sterling chain with brass accents. The necklace makes a spectacular statement piece when worn, and would make a fantastic addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 2 1/2" long, is 1 3/8" wide, 3/8" at the thickest point. The chain measures 37" in total length.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting and chain and all of the diamonds are intact. The bail and chain clasp are secure and in good working condition.
