I like snake jewelry and items have been hard to find for years, but imagine my surprise when Harper's Bazaar showed at least 5 snake jewelry items. This small snake brooch is elegant, gold plated (vermeil) and edged with tiny prong set clear rhinestones as scales. The brooch is 1 1/4" wide and 7/8" and has a sturdy safety clasp. Marked 925 China. Excellent vintage condition. Snake jewelry was very popular during in the 1800s.
