Stunning Garnet Snake Necklace with Heart Drop in 15k Gold, circa 1870

It’s sinful, really, the way she wears her jewels, with such passion and fervor. It would be a scandal if she didn’t do it so well. The way she moves is noticeable yet smooth, a little like the snakes and servants she chooses to adorn herself in. No wonder everyone wants to talk to her, she’s captivating. It’s impossible to look at anybody else. She’s sharp, sultry, wicked, all in the best possible way. 

I was thrilled when I came across this fabulous Victorian garnet snake necklace that was handcrafted around 1870 in England. The wonderfully detailed clasp is done in 15 karat yellow gold with pink, white and green gold leaf and swirl overlays. It features four garnets, one is a juicy teardrop shaped cabochon in it’s head that measures 12.5 x 8.5 mm, and one is an oval cabochon cut in the heart that measures 5.4 x 6 mm, it also has two little cab garnet eyes. The back of the drop feature reveals space for a precious keepsake behind beveled crystal, it was originally meant to hold a lock of hair. This necklace would fit a neck of about 14.5 inches at the most, and is made to sit up high with the heart dangling, choker style. This piece weighs in at 17.1 grams. This perfectly charming snake has been professionally acid tested. 

I adore this highly detailed snake choker necklace, I know you will, too!
