This spectacular Georgian or Regency-period necklace is one of the best pieces of antique snake jewelry we have come across. In rich 15k yellow gold, this elegantly abstract serpent features graduated cabochon-cut genuine Persian turquoise, ruby eyes, and a wonderful 2-carat foil-backed garnet drop featuring a woven hair locket at the back. Converted to a necklace from a pin, on a modern 14k yellow gold rolo chain.
