Victorian 1890s ancient coin pendant set in a gold and ruby snake bezel. The snake's entire 14-karat gold body coiled around the ancient coin in declaring complete and total possession of the treasure. Its head with cabochon ruby eyes is further outstretched toward the bail. Sublime. Shown suspended from a modern 2 mm, 20" long 14-karat gold rope chain priced and sold separately.
