This is a unique 9 ct. gold, coiled snake bracelet, circa 1950's. It has an engraved scale pattern and rubies set into the top of its head and tail, which is playfully curled up at the very end.
Each time we hand select a piece, we look for unique details. We found the multiple coils, the deep pink hue of the rubies, and the gold sliding "keeper" just too hard to resist.
Dimensions & Details: Gold Snake Bracelet
- Round in shape with multiple coils. The inside circumference is just over 7 1/4 inches and has some flexibility. It can be worn loosely like a bangle or in a more fitted fashion i.e. works well on a variety of wrists.
- The bracelet is 9 ct gold with rubies and two green stone eyes that are possibly emeralds (too small to verify in setting).
