Circa 1930 Sterling Silver and Marcasite Snake Pin with Ruby Eyes. In some cultures, snakes are viewed as elegant and small dragons of respect. Historically serpents and snakes represent fertility or a creative force. As snakes shed skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. This marvelous brooch glistens from the marcasite. The ruby eyes are piercing and hypnotizing. This brooch makes a very meaningful gift for anyone celebrating life and personal transformation.
