The insane popularity of snake jewelry in the 19th century is usually credited to Queen Victoria, who received an emerald-studded serpent ring from her intended, Prince Albert, upon their engagement in 1840. This wonderful curling snake pendant from the 1860s has been converted from a brooch. The serpent's head is chased with artful scales and its eyes are set with diamonds.
