Jewelers have long been fascinated with snakes, the inspiration turned snakes in a fashion symbol. It symbolized royalty and deity in ancient Egypt, and the wearing of jeweled snakes dates back to that time, with of course the famous images of Cleopatra in her snake jewelry. Over history, it also has been representative of infinity, power, sexuality, wisdom, healing, wealth, and rebirth.
Queen Victoria’s own engagement ring from Prince Albert—which he designed—was a snake with an emerald (her birthstone) set in its head; to her, it was an emblem of eternal love. Because her taste was hugely influential on popular culture of the time, snakes suddenly appeared everywhere in jewelry: rings, bracelets, necklaces, engraved designs on lockets, and so forth, peaking between the 1840s and 1860s, and still hugely collectible today.
The snake’s popularity dwindled a bit after the Victoria era, but enjoyed a resurgence during the Art Nouveau period, both as part of the movement’s greater trend toward nature themes, and because its sinuous lines worked perfectly with Art Nouveau style.
Roberto Cavalli has some great designs, from bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
