They say that black snakes are a good thing, at least in North Carolina, as they protect against other snakes. This beauty is black enamel with rhinestones from head to rattler. Green eyes and a coiled body measure about 3.5" wide and 2" tall. A beauty in excellent condition.

Wrapped in history, the snake has been one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols and very popular in jewelry. The Victorian era popularized snake jewelry even more after Prince Albert proposed to Queen Victoria with the very first engagement ring, which was in the image of a snake with an emerald-set head. For Victoria, the snake was an emblem of eternal love, the ultimate token of happily-ever-after.
