Cuff with Snake relief replica in Sterling Silver of the bracelet found in Pompei.
In Roman religion, the serpent-shaped Genie (lat. Genius) was the benevolent guardian spirit, a symbol of fertility and sexuality. Snake-body rings and bracelets, linked to health-protecting gods, were widespread in the Roman era. Women used to wear this type of the cuffs often in pairs on both wrists and forearms.
Jewelry inspired by the ancient collections.
