Vintage Snake Themed Jewelry: Great for the 2014 Chinese Calendar!


The Chinese calendar declares the time span between February 10, 2013 and January 30, 2014 to be the period belonging to the water snake. A classic Chinese zodiac sign, Peter Suchy Jewelers offers you a carefully vetted jewelry selection featuring the serpent–in a vintage jewelry sort of way!

Double Snake Gold and Platinum Ring with Diamonds 

 

This ring is Victorian and features a classic double snake design. A 14k pink gold setting trades off with platinum. Two old-mine-cut diamonds weigh .12cts. They adorn the heads of the snakes. Each snake looks in another direction. The beautiful design of this piece is sure to endear it to the wearer. It is suitable for daily wear or special occasions.

British Victorian Pink Gold Snake Ring with Diamonds 

 

The artisan selected 18k solid pink gold for the setting material of this cocktail ring. Due to the artistry employed in the design of this ring, we date it to originating in Great Britain some time between the 1870s and the 1890s. The back of the snake’s head features five old-mine brilliant-cut diamonds weighing .37cts. When you wear this ring, it looks as though the snake coils itself around your finger three times. A truly beautiful piece.

Yellow Gold Snake Bangle Bracelet with Diamonds

 

How did the artisans color the 14k yellow gold bangle bracelet in the breathtakingly green color of a garden snake? Simple: they used green enamel! This hinged bracelet is striking and looks wonderful on the wrist. The careful texturing of the enamel is sure to get you a lot of attention. The same is true for the side of the mouth, which shows intricate artistry. Two single-cut diamonds weighing .02cts add a touch of sparkle to the eyes.

Diamond and Pink Sapphire Snake Bangle Bracelet

 

The setting material is 18k white gold. It features 316 full-cut white round diamonds weighing 8.0cts. Another 151 pink sapphires weighing 3.80cts provide the visual counterpoints. The snake’s eyes are made of two round red rubies weighing .08cts. This is a stunning piece that you have to see to believe. The artisanship demands that you make it the focal point of your jewelry ensemble.

Pink Gold Wire Earrings with a Snake Motif 

 

To the uninitiated, they may look like swirl earrings. To you, they are stunning renditions of snakes with their heads coiled and ready for the strike. The 14k pink gold setting cradles 22 full-cut round diamonds weighing .14cts. They are bead-set into the gold. These earrings are a perfect gift for the woman with pierced lobes.
