Victorian 18kt Ruby & Diamond Curled Snake Pendant
An artistic gold pendant from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This wonderful piece is made of vibrant 18kt yellow gold with a semi-matte finish and has a beautiful, curled 3-dimensional design. The pendant has the subtle appearance of a snake, whose body coils and loops to form a round pretzel-like shape with its head emerging at the center. A rose of five sparkling diamonds and one luscious ruby form a line down the snake's head, adding a perfect accent! Three of the diamonds are Rose Cuts in bezel settings; the other two are prong-set old Mine Cuts. Placed strategically on the back of the piece is a hidden gold bail, allowing the pendant to hang seamlessly from your favorite gold chain. A fabulous Victorian piece, it's perfect for any snake lover and would make a fantastic addition to any collection!
Measurements: The piece hangs 1 1/4" long, measures 1 1/8" wide, and is approximately 3/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or ruby and diamonds, all of which are intact. The hidden bail is secure and in good condition.
