Victorian Enamel And Topaz Snake Cuff Circa 1845
Historically, serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. They were very popular during the Victorian era. Prince Albert gave Queen Victoria a snake ring for her engagement to symbolise protection and eternal love.
