Antique or slightly later stick pin, a snake coiled around an opal, in 14K gold. This fantastic piece combines a brilliant oval opal cabochon with an entwined, beautifully detailed snake; the serpent's neck and tail are raised above the stone. The opal looks primarily pink with my camera lighting, but I have included two photos that show the opal in alternate lighting; it's a gorgeous stone wherever it's placed. The pin stem is marked 14, which leads me to believe it slightly post-dates the Victorian and Art Nouveau eras, and the whole pin has been tested as 14K. The opal measures about 8mm by 5mm and the entire head of the pin is 3/8" by 7/16". The condition is excellent with no chips or scratches.
