Each of these phenomenal late Georgian snake earrings have faceted emerald eyes and a head set with a deep purplish red garnet in the shape of a witch's heart. The back-to-front closures fasten at the top of each tooth-filled mouth. The wires feature loops that were probably designed to be attached to a wig, but for our more modern purposes, they will rest at the back of the earlobe to stabilize the weight of the earrings and keep them facing forward.
