A superb museum grade authentic Roman solid silver bracelet

Solid-gold and silver bracelets and rings in the form of snakes were among the  most important objects in Greek and Roman jewellery. The bracelets were often worn in pairs, either on the wrist or on the upper arm. The snakes symbolized fertility and sexual prowess and were intended to ward off evil

One of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols, serpents were a dual expression of good and evil, fertility and rebirth, poison and medicine. Throughout time, different civilizations have interpreted the serpent’s symbolism in different ways: the Egyptians saw it represent royalty and deity; in Rabbinical tradition and Hinduisim, the snake represents sexual passion and desire; while the Romans also interpreted the snake as a symbol of everlasting love

 While Cleopatra may be the most notable historic figure to espouse the wearing of snake jewellery, Greek, Nordic, African, and Native Americans have all celebrated the serpent in gilded forms with varying meaning
