Victorian 15ct Gold and Turquoise Snake Necklet.

Representing everlasting love, serpentine jewellery was a popular theme for fashionable jewellery in the early to mid Victorian period.

This sinuous closed articulated chain necklet features a reptile's head with a heart hanging from its mouth reflecting this symbolism.

The scaled head is mounted with oval turquoise of good colour in a bezel setting.

Concealed inside the head is a depressed tongue clasp that is firm and secure and in excellent working order.

The back of the head is stamped 15ct .

The eyes are comprised of bezel-set garnets. The heart has a small rose-cut diamond placed in the centre. 

Circa 1860
