As you may have heard, 2013 is the year of the snake in the Chinese Zodiac calendar. People born in years of the snake are said to be enigmatic, intuitive, introspective and refined, and snake years are supposed to be full of progress and insight. Since ancient times, snakes have come to represent creation, rebirth, healing and immortality.
In ancient Egypt, snake jewelry symbolized royalty, and in ancient Greece and Rome snake jewelry was worn to ward off evil and heal. In the 1800s, Queen Victoria made serpent jewels popular again by selecting an engagement ring in the shape of an emerald-headed snake, after which it became a symbol of everlasting love.
Today serpent jewelry is the perfect mix of edginess and glamour, and we’re looking forward to celebrating the year of the snake with everything from sweet serpent studs to slithering gold and diamond bangles! Read on to see our favorite snake pieces for 2013.
