I’m photographing my first antique snake bracelet, it’s just amazing and should be worn on the upper arm, it looks like it should be in a museum featuring gold and mine cut diamonds. Very old 1800’s.
Researching it, I’ll let you know what I find out! 🙂
“In the ancient Greek and Roman world, snakes symbolized fertility and were believed to ward off evil. It is probably due to the animal’s protective associations that solid gold snake rings and bracelets were among the most popular types of Greek and Roman jewelry. Snake bracelets were often worn in pairs, around the wrists as well as on the upper arms. ” http://art.thewalters.org
