The 15 Best Ways to Wear a Snake
2013 is the year of the snake in the lunar astrological calendar. People born in the year of the snake appreciate beauty and enjoy fashion. It’s a feminine sign, associated with luxury and style.
The snake is also one of the most enduring inspiration for jewelry, from Cleopatra’s bangle to Queen Victoria’s engagement ring, a symbol of eternal love and eternal life.
Today snake jewelry is as fashionable as ever, with snaky styles by Lorraine Schwartz, Stephen Webster, Bulgari, Boucheron, and Neil Lane. Zoe Saldana wore a snake ring to the Oscars, Rhianna and Alicia Keys were adorned with snake styles at the Grammys, and Julianne Moore wore a Bulgari snake bracelet to the Golden Globes.
The year of the snake is a year of fabulous fashionable serpent jewelry. In celebration, here are my fifteen favorite snake jewels.

Love this post Cheryl, especially the theo fennell snake – stunning! Maybe you could do a similar article on other reptiles? Lizards and dragonflies seem very popular at the moment. Keep it coming!
Very exquisite and eclectic, already pinned!
This’s an amazing collection for snake jewelry. I really love “Spectacular Cartier Eternity Emerald Necklace”. Just wondered how designer had wonderfull ideas for this.

This is such an interesting post on snake jewelry. Love the turquoise snake bangle, very pretty. I’m so happy that the it’s the year of the snake so I can sport my snake bangle I found in my grandma’s jewelry box.
O.M.G. – each one is more amazing than the last – you win Best Snake Jewelry post on the internet!!!
Thanks Robyn! Which is your favorite? The Maria Felix necklace is the most impressive because of the articulation (and it’s life size, which is awesome.) But I’d most love to own the two thousand year old Roman rings.
