Georgian Era 12K Gold, Turquoise, Ruby and Diamond Snake Pendant

This stunning Georgian era pendant features a curling snake in a clover-like form with three turquoise cabochons, and two garnet gemstones. The snake head pointing downwards holds a full heart with a centrally places detail diamond inside a star. The snake has engraved texture all along its curling body. This pendant has been hand-made with excellent craftsmanship and care for details. You can see some of the hand-soldering when you turn the pendant over. The snake measures approximately one inch in size, and with the top bale as well as hanging heart, the charm measures a total of 1-3/4 inches. It has nice movement to it and would be perfect for fastening onto any necklace or charm bracelet. 

The turquoise cabochons measure 4.5mm in size; the red ruby eyes measure approximately 1mm. The snake or serpent has long been considered the symbol of eternal love, its curling body creating a lover's knot, forever binding lovers. This snake also resembles a clover, which in the Georgian era was a symbol of good fortune. Perhaps this charming pendant was once hanging from a lover's chain, bringing luck and blissful love to the person wearing it. Circa 1840.
