Victorian pearl and diamond serpent pin in silver and rose gold

SKU: 7061408


A rather interesting Victorian pearl, diamond and ruby serpent pin / brooch set in silver-on-gold.
The piece is subtly set with two intertwining snakes which are both set with graduating in size old mine cut diamonds. Each snake is set with two cabochon ruby eyes and they both point towards the largest of the old mine cut diamonds. To the top and bottom of the pin there are two cream coloured pearls; the largest of the two pearls being embellished to the top with another old mine cut diamond.
The level of detail in this piece is superb and the snakes are cleverly crafted to symbolise eternity. What people may not know is that the snake motif was a highly important symbol in the Victorian era. Queen Victoria herself was given an emerald snake ring for her engagement by Prince Albert. This ring was something that popularised snake jewellery.
The piece is then secured to reverse with a hinged pin and hoop claps fitting. It measures approximately 6.8 x 1.3 centimetres. Estimated total carat weight is 1.31 carats, ranging from I-K in colour with VS1-SI clarity.
