Antique Victorian 14k gold snake earrings with amethysts, sapphires, and diamonds. Superbly designed and crafted, these gorgeous earrings have full-bodied snakes with detailed heads and curled tails coiled around large, faceted purple amethysts. The snakes' eyes are dark blue sapphires and each snake has a sparkling clear diamond in its head. The coils wrap fully around the amethysts on the reverse, a delightful feature to show off as well. All the stones are genuine gemstones.
Feast your eyes on the meticulous gold work, seen in the contouring and the exquisite engraving throughout.
The earrings measure 1-3/4" from the top of the wire or 1" from the attached top loop. They are 7/16" at widest. The ear wires, a later addition, are marked 585 and are completely secure.
Unmarked, the earrings have been fully tested. They are in excellent condition with no chips or scratches.
Given the current popularity of snake jewelry, you won't want to miss these.
