You’ve heard of a copperhead snake but even more rare is the glitterhead snake, a beautiful bejeweled viper. A glittering crown and collar, bright green eyes, and a tiny forked tongue give this piece tons of personality. One of our favorite super-detailed serpentine finds.
Vintage gilt metal and crystals. Unmarked. Best fits a medium to large wrist. Measures approximately 2.25" across interior; face .75" wide. Good condition with one area of wear to the gold finish on the mesh band.
A snake’s forked tongue serves to enhance their sense of smell. That tiny tongue flashes out into the air then returns to an internal sensory receptor called Jacobson’s organ, which reads the molecules picked up by the tongue.
