This wonderful snake bracelet is made of Jet, a light-weight black mineral formed from decaying wood under severe pressure. Jet has a glass feel and look, but the wearer will know the difference.

This is a Victorian era mourning bracelet. The coiled snake symbolizes eternal love and infinity and the mourning jewelry served to enhance and remind the wearer of these sentiments.

Alas! Don't be sad. The sentiment is wonderful and the beauty of jet and snake jewelry is classic.

On the body of the bracelet, each segment is faceted, allowing light to reflect off of its many surfaces giving the piece a truly elegant, yet whimsical, feel.

The bracelet has a diameter of 2 3/4 inches but is flexible, allowing it to fit any size. Its "memory" in the coil is larger to the equivalent of about a size 8 bracelet, so we would suggest this will fit a larger wrist better.

There is some minor chipping on the snake's lower jaw. It initially looks to be part of the carving, but if you look closely, you see that it is a chip.

There are minor flea bites in a few of the segments, but otherwise this piece is in excellent condition.

Because the piece is black, you will have to look closely to see any flaws.

This is a great bracelet. We love jet jewelry and especially love the snake design in jet.
