A common theme in jewellery design is that of the snake or serpent because of its lovely curvy shape. The head is often the place for a gemstone, but in this version a bright round garnet has been set between two of its body curves.
Garnet is the birthstone for January and is a rich red colour, slightly darker than a ruby. The gemstone in this piece is a high quality clear, faceted round stone.

Garnet is the birthstone for January and the stone that celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage. The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate. This reference makes sense as small garnets look like the bright red seeds you find inside in a pomegranate.
