teardrop banded agate
snake is 9k gold
22" modern 14k gold chain
circa 1870s - 1890s
converted from a Victorian stick pin
Prince Albert gifted Queen Victoria with an engagement ring that depicted a snake and once word got out... everyone needed some type of snake adornment. During the 19th century, snakes symbolized eternal love and were one of the most coveted pieces of jewelry one could collect. But our serpent friends go further back in history. Snakes are an ancient medallion. They represent self transformation and even a rebirth. This pendant was converted from a Victorian Era stick pin and strung upon a golden chain. The snake wraps itself around a beautiful teardrop shape banded agate that displays incredible depth. We love this necklace for its historical symbolism and connection to nature.
