This vintage William Kerr snake buckle has been repurposed to hold fifteen strands of intense rhodolite garnet gemstones.
The 1890's sterling snake is one half of a belt buckle to which I have attached sterling eyelets to hold the gemstone strands. At one time, the snake had a gold wash, which has faded and worn in some places, leaving a slight gold tone to the piece. I replaced the missing stone in the eye of the snake with a natural ruby. The piece measures 2.5" in length x 2" in width at the widest point.

The garnet gems are a rich, intense magenta and have much depth in the color. The gems are approximately 3mm to 3.5mm in size. Finished with sterling findings and a locking, sterling slide tube clasp. I have added a ring to the mouth of the snake where a rhodolite garnet briolette now hangs.

This piece is best suited for a wrist 6.5" and larger. The piece is really too big for a smaller wrist. Also, better to be worn on a left arm so the snake faces inward.

This bracelet just needs your wrist measurement to be completed with  sterling French wire, crimps and a custom locking, slide clasp.
