Retro German Rolled Gold French Paste Snake Bracelet
A fantastic snake bracelet set from the Retro (ca1940s) era! Crafted in rolled gold plate, this stylish German-made piece has a vibrant eye-catching appearance and alluring serpentine design. A pattern of grooves gives the piece a textured surface, mimicking the appearance of "scales" on the snakes' tail and body. Vibrant green French paste stones represent the eyes, and lightly etched markings decorate the 3-dimensional head and face. When worn, the flexible bracelet coils several times around the wrist for a wide, dramatic look, resting snugly and securely with no need for a clasp. Stamped underneath the snake head are several markings, including "ROLLED GOLD, the initials "ST," and "GERMANY." A dramatic and striking bracelet, it has effortless modern appeal would be right at home in any fashion-forward jewelry collection!
Measurements: When left tightly coiled, the bracelet's inner diameter (where a wrist would rest) measures 1 7/8" in size. When expanded, it measures up to 2 1/4" in diameter. The stack of coils measures about 1 5/8" wide in the front.
Condition: The overall condition of the piece is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the rolled gold plate design. 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.
