A Victorian Diamond Double Serpent Brooch

Description

A Victorian diamond double serpent brooch, the central old European-cut diamond weighing approximately 0.55 carat, surrounded by two entwinned serpents curled in a figure-of-eight design, the bodies and snouts encrusted with old brilliant-cut diamonds weighing approximately 2 carats, the eyes set with cabochon rubies, all set in silver to yellow gold back and gold brooch fitting, circa 1880, measuring approximately 1.2x4cm, gross weight 5.18 grams.

A dazzling and elegant late nineteenth century brooch. This brooch takes the form of two serpents, each sinuously curved over a central old-cut diamond. The intertwined serpents are set with further scintillating diamonds, and the eyes of the creatures are set with glinting cabochon-cut rubies. The stones are set to bright silver and a yellow gold back. During the Victorian era, serpent jewellery had several symbolic meanings, but the strongest association was with fidelity and everlasting love. A gorgeous piece.
