Snake Charmer

My obsession with snake themed jewelry is endless...so I was thrilled to recently learn that New York City vintage jeweler Doyle and Doyle has collaborated with Anthropologie in offering some fabulous options culled from it's collections.  Aren't these Victorian era snake rings amazing?  And, I love that  Anthropologie explains a bit of the history behind such beauties...
If snakes aren't your thing, there are some other really lovely pieces, such as these two gorgeous vintage estate rings. 

The idea of owning a piece of jewelry with a bit of history behind it, is so appealing. Taking statement jewelry to the next level as conversation piece... (not to mention great "ice" breaker!)

  14. Really like that last ring. I sell vintage jewelry (even have a snake bracelet in my shop right now) so obviously it's my thing, I love it and most of the time you aren't going to run into anyone else wearing it. Thrilled Anthro is doing it, of course it's them - always so chic.

  19. I can understand why you'd be obsessed, but snakes freak me out just a bit too much. :)
