Carefully curated with meticulous attention to detail, we have sourced each component for this exquisite piece separately; the snake head came to us as an individual component, having been previously removed from its original chain.  This collectable piece makes an impact, whether worn alone or layered with other chains and necklaces.

 

The focal point, a striking snake head, features a substantial pink topaz, captivating garnet cabochon eyes, and delightful turquoise accents.  A repurposed Victorian turquoise charm, delicately dangling from the snake's mouth, creates wonderful movement when worn.  Encased in its original 18-carat gold Victorian setting, the turquoise charm is complemented by a newly crafted 18-carat gold bail.

 

Crafted in solid gold throughout, the necklace is a fabulous rich yellow-gold colour.  Professional laser testing indicates the chain and clasp are made of 15-carat gold, while the snake head registers at 9-carat. An acid test confirms the snake head's gold content as 15-carat, suggesting a high-carat guild beyond the 9-carat standard.

 

With a wearable length of 20.5 inches and a 5mm chain width, the hidden clasp is seamlessly integrated into the side of the snake head, allowing it to gracefully coil around your neck.

 

This beautiful necklace is an essential piece for your antique jewellery collection.
