Almandine garnet and gold serpent necklace c.1860. Victorian. Tests as 15kt gold

A truly fine example of Victorian jewellery. C.1860 this necklace was inspired by Queen Victoria's engagement ring from Prince Albert in 1839 which was a serpent ring with an emerald and diamond. (the whereabouts of this ring is unknown)

The almandine garnets in this necklace are such a lovely rosey colour and the serpent like scales of the necklace move so fluidly in the hand and on the neck.

The head of the serpent has yellow, white and rose gold features such a cool feature.
