Snakes are beguiling creatures, drawing fear and fascination in equal measure. They have been referenced in literature, mythology and the arts throughout history- irrespective of culture, and often representing a duality of good and evil. Appearing in biblical texts, ancient sacred sites and are inextricably linked with healing via the caduceus, many snakes shed their skin so they are also associated with transformation.They are a potent and eternal symbol, so there is little surprise that jewellers have long been captivated by serpents, interpreting them in a myriad of ways. This 14ct gold snake bangle features two ruby eyes and pavé set diamonds on the spine and tail.
This striking bangle weaves itself hypnotically around the wrist, creating a sense of movement and instant impact and interest. An invisible hinge in the under section allows the upper mid-section to lever open revealing a hidden clasp. Once on the wrist, the clasp clicks discretely and securely in place.
This is a statement piece, so needs no other embellishment on the wrist. But a dress ring like the 18ct yellow gold Serenata ring is bold enough to partner the bangle, without competing.
We took inspiration from the snake when designing the bespoke snake ear clip for a hearing aid activist. This powerful motif embraced qualities which resonated with the client.
