The Details...

The necklace is a choker longth and measures 37cm in length. 

A Short History...

Inspired by the Egyptian Revival aesthetic of the time, the snake was a recurring motif in jewellery of the 1920s. Due to its ability to wrap around, the snake was popularly used in necklaces and bracelets.
