This gorgeous snake necklace is set in 14KT yellow gold. It may be 15KT if this piece was made in England, however the marks do not indicate the country of origin. It was made circa 1850 with beautiful workmanship. The detail of the head is fine and it is set with 66 Round Cabochon turquoises. As traditional, the eyes are rubies. This snake has a fierce head with finely carved teeth. The body of the necklace is a beautiful snake-like link which flows beautifully, almost like a slithering serpent. This piece is completed by a safety chain and is in excellent condition. The necklace measures 16 inches in length.
