ADORABLE 15CT TURQUOISE VICTORIAN SNAKE NECKLET

$ 7,900

Rare and in wonderful condition this little guy will add so much to any outfit.  Snake lovers will also understand how important facial beauty is.  He has a highlighted stripe down the middle of his head, two bright red cabochon garnet eyes and a sweet smiley little mouth and rounded chin with little teeth nibbling the heart locket set with a turquoise forget me knot.  The pave is exquisitely executed with bright even Persian turquoise.  The chain itself is a wonder!  The graduated articulated links imitating scales are in wonderful condition and the ingenious clasp fitting is neat and very secure.
