Vintage Textured Snake Bracelet
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
Is there no end to the marvelous--and ingenious--variations on design of the iconic (and ancient) snake bracelet? We think not. While some interpretations of this sinuous reptile as a jewel are exquisitely ornate, this one is as sleek and understated as they come. Bejeweled only with two ruby eyes, its brightly burnished 18K yellow gold body is decorated with subtly textured scales and wraps around just once, its tail cleverly curling up to create a pressure clasp. Super chic. Cleopatra would love it. Hand fabricated, it measures 7 inches.
