This is a traditional snake bracelet from North Africa, most of the ones we have seen till today have been from Algeria but there also Moroccan and Tunisian ones . In a very broad way the snake is a protector against the evil eye and it seems that in certain parts of the population in North Africa specifically they translated this into the snake bracelet, The bracelet is made in 21 karat gold , it has been acid tested and there are marks that verify this, The head is carved from a solid piece of gold soldered to the Body which is made of finely twisted wires thus keeping the bracelet springy and flexible even though it is high karat gold. The twisted wire is decorated with engraved lines that give the whole piece a soft and silky look reminiscent of scale, A truly unique piece, I have called it vintage as i cannot make out the marks that might have a date on them, but it could be very old,
