A fabulous Victorian serpent bangle. Jewellery in the form of serpents was very popular during the Victorian era, symbolising fidelity and everlasting love. This bracelet is a wonderful enamelled bangle featuring deep royal blue enamel over yellow gold. The head of the serpent is set with glittering old-cut diamonds that catch the light beautifully and glinting cabochon-cut ruby eyes. This piece features four hinges, allowing a comfortable fit on the wrist. Examples of this style of jewellery can be seen in many paintings and drawings from the nineteenth century, including Frederick Sandys’ ‘Portrait of a Lady’ dated to 1880 in which the sitter wears a serpent bangle layered with further bangles.
