An exquisite gold snake bracelet (c. 300-250 BCE)—realistically rendered and detailed with scales on its head and tail—was created in the Ptolemaic Kingdom and now resides in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As part of this Egyptian Snake Jewelry this sinuously chic reproduction of the bracelet is made from a master mold of the original. The pendant and the drop earrings are striking adaptations. 24k gold overlay. Cable chain necklace with lobster clasp. Gold-filled earring wires.
