I’ve always loved snake jewelry, in particular Victorian snakes. I have one snake ring but lust after a pendant. Here is my ring:

And I wouldn’t mind having one like this:

Please show me your snakes! I know they are out there!

I only have my spacer little Agatha, but I love snake/serpent jewelry.
I'm reaching out to someone to see if they'll set one of my stones because I really want a big girl ring!

Please do! So you mind sharing where your earrings came from? I can’t believe I haven’t seen them on my internet scours lol. Idk if my ring is antique or not. It says “Birks” on it and they were established in 1879 but still make jewelry I think.

Cool! Which stone and which designer? I thought of setting a marquis diamond in snake.

Sure they are from the Eden Collective. Here is the link.


Your ring looks antique to me, I think snakes/Victoriana were fashionable again in the 1960s so it could date from then, some jewellers probably did better repro than others I guess.

A while ago I made one for myself from sterling.
Here is the original thread, and a newer photo.
I reworked it recently and smoothed out a few areas.

My great uncle had a snake ring very similar to yours @Mreader, his had one snake with diamond eyes and one with rubies. He'd be about 120 if he were still alive, so his must've dated from the 30s or 40s.

I want to have https://oozajewelry.com make me a version of one of her snake designs but I can't decide on which one!!! She's on Insta and https://www.etsy.com/shop/OOZAJewelry?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=857650011
It's a little more of a contemporary feel and she's a 'newer' young artist. I haven't even asked her if she sets outside stones, but I'm hoping she will.
My favorite is finding female artists to buy from. Not always, but all of my commissions have been so far :bigsmile:

@Mreader It's a toss up between these two: The round ember colored or my new sleepy baby(the last of the triplets) I'm actually leaning into round town but I'm just not sure.

An eBay find, rose gold snake bracelet with rhodolite garnet and diamond head and tail. It's really cool. This is the glamour shot from the auction listing, I actually wear it with the snake head and tail pointing downward towards my fingers. It latches on the bottom, much like a belt would...there are three holes on the underside of the tail and the latch has a little head right in the middle that fits into those holes.

I got my ears pierced at the age of 57, when I saw these earrings in a jewellery store. I just had to have them! :)
They were called tadpoles, but they could pass for snakes, I think.

Those are so cool and what an interesting story about your piercings!
What’s even weirder - I didn’t buy the earrings right away. I mulled over my decision to get my ears pierced for about 6 months, before calling the jewellery store to see if they still had the earrings.
Then I drove 3.5 hours to go buy them. I got to the store, and they were having a “going out of business” sale. I bought the earrings, but couldn’t even try them on, as I hadn’t yet had my ears pierced.

Thank you very much for your nice comments and your kind words, @Daisys and Diamonds.
I try to stay young at heart, but it gets harder as I am getting older. I got my ears pierced 12 years ago, so I’m even older than you thought :D

I love reading all your thoughtful posts. And at 50 years young, you’re still a baby! :)

here’s my snake setting from OMJ.

Would love to have an antique piece as well. I love even the ones that have derpy faces. :)

Cheyenne Weil also has put out some beautifully done snake pieces
