Cleopatra loved her Snakes
Cleopatra would be proud to wear a collar necklace like this. Her favorite creatures, (serpents and snakes) surround three large jeweled cabachons that are ruby color and jade color. Set in a wide ( 2" with an additional 2" drop for the cross) hinged European collar with many drops that hang from it. A large signed ( can't make it out) Gothic cross with a glass venetian bead that is sterling ( the necklace is not sterling, just the bead). The necklace measures 19" long on the inside. It is a very impressive old piece for sure!
