This gorgeous Victorian necklace is so deliciously smooth to the touch, with such luxurious look and texture.

He was hand crafted around 1860-1870 in Victorian time England. The workmanship of this chain is just genius, see how slinky he is, moving just like an actual snake! To think that he was made by hand and tool seems almost impossible and it shows the great skill and precision of the Victorian master jeweller. His links are sweetly feminine and wavy in shape, woven together in such a clever way. Imagine how long it would have taken to create that super slinky snake-like movement so that it coils around your neck to perfection!

We just love snake chains together with pendants and lockets. They have a way of adding beauty and making anything suspended from them bigger, better and more lush ! It is classy and stylish, while the rich, buttery yellow tone of the gold will blend well with other chains for a fabulous neck mess or ..... wear him alone.

He is not hallmarked and so we tested him gently and he is 15 karat gold. The chain is 16.5 inches long, 2.4 mm thick and weighs a lovely 7.2 grams. He is in lovely antique condition.

We love ...... this gorgeous snake for your neck, it can give you so many different looks ! He can do simple and elegant, demure and playful, luscious and rich, dressed up or down ....
