Retro German 14kt Rolled Gold Snake Bracelet + Choker Necklace Set
A fantastic snake necklace and bracelet set from the Retro (ca1940s) era! Crafted in 14kt rolled gold plate, this stylish German-made duo has a vibrant high-karat appearance and alluring serpentine design. Both the necklace and bracelet have a flexible design that adjusts to each wearer's wrist and neck, eliminating the need for a clasp. A pattern of grooves give each piece a textured surface, mimicking the appearance of "scales" on the snakes' tails and bodies. Vibrant green crystals represent their eyes, and lightly etched markings decorate their 3-dimensional heads and faces. When worn, the bracelet coils several times around the wrist for a wide, dramatic look, resting snugly and securely. The necklace easily stretches open to wrap around the neck, forming a sleek choker with the snake's head and tail meeting at the center. Stamped underneath each snake head are several markings, including "14K RGP" (meaning "14kt Rolled Gold Plate"), the initials "ST," and the word "GERMANY." A dramatic and striking jewelry set, it has effortless modern appeal, and would be right at home in any fashion-forward jewelry collection!
Measurements: Both pieces have a flexible design, expanding to accommodate a range of wrist and neck sizes. When left tightly coiled, the bracelet's inner diameter (where a wrist would rest) measures 2 3/4" in size. When expanded, it measures up to 3 1/2" in diameter. The stack of coils measures about 2 1/4" wide in the front.
The flexible choker necklace measures approximately 15" in total length, but thanks to its open "bypass" design in the front, it would also fit on a larger neck if desired. The surface of the necklace measures approximately 1/4" wide and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of both pieces is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the rolled gold plate design. All of the green crystal eyes are intact and securely set. The flexible design expands easily, and retracts again comfortably when set in place, allowing for a secure fit.
