French Antique Yellow Gold & Ruby Snake Bangle Bracelet

This winding snake cuff is fit for Cleopatra. Made in France circa 1860, this Victorian era flexible 18K yellow gold bangle bracelet is bezel set with two piercing natural round rubies that form the serpent’s eyes. The snake motif, thought to symbolize wisdom, fidelity, and love was popular amongst royals and nobles in Victorian times. Queen Victoria had several serpent pieces, including her engagement ring. The fashionable motif even made its way into one of Charles Dickens' books, entitled David Copperfield. Noted as one of the greatest social critics and novelists of the Victorian era, one of Dickens' characters reflected, "I show Sophy which of the diamond-eyed serpents, coiled up on white satin rising-grounds, I would give her if I could afford it..." 

This 18K yellow gold bracelet is in very good condition with light wear on the metal and a French hallmark. Needless to say, this piece is a stunning original part of Victorian history. Give to your beloved, or yourself; either way, you'll be the true envy of all onlookers!
