This collectable Antique Georgian snake brooch features a plaited lock of hair behind glass, inside a Snake ouroboros, set in 9ct Gold throughout.

An Ouroboros is a snake or dragon biting its own tail, it has existed as an image of eternity since ancient times, and remained popular when this brooch was made two hundred years ago. Hair jewellery was also traditional 200 years ago and was used as a token of remembrance.

This piece is a real conversation starter and would make a great addition to any collection.
