Snake Necklaces: What Does Serpent Jewelry Symbolize?

Snake jewelry isn't just a trendy accessory - it's a piece of history and culture wrapped around your neck (or wrist, or finger). Let's slither through time and explore what snake jewelry symbolizes in different civilizations, and why it might just be the perfect addition to your collection.

Royalty and Deity

In ancient Egypt, snakes were very important. The cobra, in particular, was a symbol of royalty and divine authority. Pharaohs often wore headdresses adorned with the image of a cobra, known as the Uraeus, to signify their power and protection by the gods.

Statement of Strength and Bravery

Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egypt is famously associated with snakes, especially the asp. Legend has it that she used a snake to end her life, Suicide was perceived differently at that time and was considered the act of immense bravery. Cleopatra demonstrated control and "maintained dignity even in the face of death" (Jacquelyn Williamson, Associate Professor of Art and Archeology of the Mediterranean) by poisoning herself with the venomous snake, solidifying her status as the Queen of Egypt.

This powerful act influenced jewelry design, with snake motifs becoming symbols of bravery and dignity. Wearing snake jewelry today can channel Cleopatra’s legendary courage and regal poise, making it a timeless statement of strength.

Healing and Wisdom

The Greeks and Romans saw snakes as symbols of healing and wisdom. This connection comes from Asclepius, the god of medicine, who is often depicted holding a staff with a snake coiled around it. This symbol, known as the Rod of Asclepius, is still used in medicine today. Wearing snake jewelry in these cultures was like carrying around a lucky charm for health and knowledge. So, if you've got a big test coming up or are feeling a bit under the weather, maybe slip on that snake necklace!
