The snake has a dual representation of good and evil, fertility and rebirth, poison and medicine. Throughout history different civilizations used serpents' symbolism in different ways. Egyptians as royalty and deity; Rabbinical and Hinduisim, sexual desire and passion; Romans as everlasting love. Cleopatra is the most notable historic figure wearing snake jewelry however Native Americans , Nordic, Greek, and African, have used the snake symbol with different meanings. Queen Victorian made the wearing of snake jewelry popular after Prince Albert proposed with the first engagement ring. It was a snake with an emerald-set head. The snake for Victoria was an emblem of eternal love. The snake continues to be a popular symbol in jewelry.
I do not polish my vintage silver as some people like the aged patina. If you want me to polish it before shipping, just let me know! I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
