A Victorian Diamond Serpent Brooch

Description

A Victorian diamond serpent brooch, the serpent curled in a figure-of-eight design, the head, the body and snout encrusted with old brilliant-cut diamonds, estimated to weigh a total of 2.7 carats, all diamonds set in silver to a yellow gold mount and brooch fitting, two cabochon-cut ruby eyes rubover-set to a yellow gold mount, circa 1850, measures approximately 3.7×2.0cm, gross weight 7.0 grams.

A lovely brooch, shaped like a snake. In 1840, Prince Albert had an engagement ring in the shape of a snake made for his soon-to-be wife, Queen Victoria. This brooch, made about 10 years after this famous royal wedding, features the snake motif which became very popular in symbolising everlasting love and fidelity. This romantic piece would look stunning on a silk scarf, blouse, or lapel, and catches the light beautifully.
