Snakes and serpents - One of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols in various cultures is the snake or serpent. Symbol of fertility, immortality, wisdom, intelligence and healing, the snake has always been adjusted many positive (and negative) characteristics.

Therefore it should not come as a surprise that they always were a rich source of inspiration for goldsmiths and jewelers over the ages. At Adin we have a nice collection of snake jewelry, mostly made at the end of the 19th Century. Come and take a look.
