And I forgot. But it hardly seems right to let my failure as a pegger-of-stories-to-events prevent us from ogling lots of lovely serpent jewelry today. Right? Let’s start things off big: this Elise Dray triple snake ring is made of white, pink, and black gold. And then grey, brown, and black diamonds. Also, when the snakes are eating their tails like that? That’s called an ouroboros.
In general I’m a big fan of figurative serpent imagery over anything more literal-ish, and veer away from that which skews in any way goth, scaly, or Ozzy. I go nuts for pieces as super-simple as this yellow gold ring by Conroy & Wilcox.
And here’s a not-entirely-dissimilar one in brass that’ll run you a whole lot less. This is totally a category in which you can find items at any point on the price spectrum.
And yet, at the moment I might be more likely to go for the similar mood struck here for under $50.
Generally speaking, I’m not a snake cuff person; that’s always fallen under the heading of Drama Jewelry for me, along with headpieces and jeweled chokers. But this one is so minimal and elegant that you can almost see it on Kate Moss during that brief period back in the 1990s, when she was dating Johnny Depp and always wearing clean Calvin Klein separates.
This one just made me laugh. And we must always leave the door open just a crack for cheeky in the universe of personal adornment, don’t you think?
This Ariel Gordon necklace is the type you could put on, and leave on, for days, and not fuss over whether it went with every single different outfit you changed into.
