This gorgeous highly detailed hand charm is a cast from one of my treasured collection of Victorian hand jewelry. It features and gloved hand holding a snake. The snake is in a circle and is striking at the hand.
In heraldry the snake represents wisdom and defiance. The snake also represents fertility and a creative life force. They are symbols of rebirth, transformation immortality and healing. The ouroboros is a symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life.
This charm measures 40mm in length including the bail. It weighs 3 grams of solid sterling silver.
(If 6mm is not wide enough for your necklace please let me know and I can swop it for a larger one)
This listing is for the 'hand charm' only. The picture with the love amulets on it are for demonstration purposes only.
