Antique Ruby and Diamond Set 18k Gold Snake Shaped Slide

I'm not usually a buyer of slides, so few people know how to really wear them properly these days. They need a fantastic long guard chain to really be worn well. I just had to make an exception for this absolutely fantastic Snake Slide, though, because I know that there are Slide lovers out there and if you have an appreciation for this often overlooked item of jewelry, than this is the slide for you! Rare and superb and exceedingly lovely.

Hand crafted with spectacular detail in 18 karat gold and set with a fantastic fiery round faceted Red Ruby in a halo of rose cut diamonds with bright ruby eyes. The snake still has the original cork inset to hold the chain. It measures just over 1.5 inches long and just over .75 inches wide. It weighs 5.8 grams. It's not marked but is likely English or French in origin and dates to about 1890.
