Tiffany & Co. Enamel and Diamond Snake Bracelet

Created by Tiffany & Co. New York around 1900, this snake bracelet is composed of 18K gold, enamel and diamonds. It is designed as a serpent with old European-cut diamond head and eyes, knotted around itself, completed by flexible rounded links highlighted by green basse taille enamel scales flecked with orange. Delicate and refined, sitting lightly on the wrist, this rare, highly flexible Tiffany jewel with its naturalistic patterning, intense colors and pop of sparkle on its head has an outsize impact.
