A marvelous and unusual objet for desk or vanity – antique Victorian rock crystal seal with monogram, finely etched at its base and beautifully encircled by a sterling silver serpent with rose cut diamond eyes. For centuries snakes have been regarded as symbols of protection and guardianship because when threatened, they tend to stand their ground and fight rather than retreat. Many ancient sites have used symbols of snakes at their entryways as symbolic defenders and having a snake talisman is a potent reminder of strength and courage in the face of fear and adversity. Snakes have also throughout history been important symbols of rebirth and renewal because of the way that they shed their outer layer.
