C.1880. A superb Victorian silver gilded snake necklace. The gorgeous snake collar wraps around a neck with a generous size. The chunky body has a tapered tail, and it coils around the snake's head at its center. The necklace is beautifully textured, and the snake has two ruby eyes. The clasp works properly and closes with a good click. It is discreet in design, so the collar goes seamless when worn. The inside measurement is approximately just under 17". Outer measurement is about 20.25". The necklace is comfortable when worn. Overall it is in great condition.
