The Story

Snakes have a long and rich history in jewelry dating back to Ancient Greece and Rome, where snakes symbolized wisdom. The Victorians often used snakes to symbolize everlasting love and eternity. 

This vintage snake charm pendant is a beautiful and chic piece. Made circa mid to late 20th century from rich 18 karat yellow gold, the body is waved in form. It has a stylized cobra head and neck and ends with a simple tail. It hangs from its original coil bale.
