An amazing antique, early Victorian snake or serpent ouroboros bracelet.

The bracelet is made from tightly woven brown hair with a 9ct gold head and tail, a mourning piece stacked full of sentiment with the symbolism of eternity coming from the ouroboros.

The head and tail are unmarked but test as 9ct gold, English make, early Victorian era.
