18K & Platinum Victorian Diamond & Ruby Guilloche Enamel Snake Crescent Necklace
An excellent Victorian c.1890-1900 green guilloche enamel snake wrapped around a crescent, modelled in platinum and 18k gold, and set with old European cut diamonds, and a cabochon ruby in its eyes and a pearl. You can see it’s forked tongue poking out which makes for such wonderful detailing.
There is very minimal or non visible enamel loss and is in great condition. It was a brooch and we have converted this into a wearable necklace on 18k gold chain with 16/18” interchangeable lengths.
It measures 50mm across, and there is approx. 0.75ct of diamonds.
