This necklace is so fabulous and rare. I have had gorgeous snake necklaces, but I have never had one made of solid Carbuncle Garnets. The body and head of the main snake is carved garnet and the pendant heart hanging from the toothy smile of the snake is a heart shaped garnet. The heart pendant's frame is a tiny golden snake. The engraving is fabulous and the chain original, and long enough to actually wear! at 16" long.
Details.....The heart piece measures .78" x .60" and the drop including the large snake is 2.43" with the snake body measuring .85" x 1.65". The gold tests in a range from 9k for the chain to 18k for the snake and pendant.
