Victorian Coiled Snake & Bloodstone Cloak Pins

$3,500

Bloodstone egg-shaped orbs are richly dense, almost glowing. Gold snakes wrap around them and link up with a gold chain. Stab one of the pins onto both sides of a cloak, coat, or knitwear to hold the garment together at the breast. Impressive. Note the bloodstones are slightly different sizes.
