When I saw the photo of this pendant, I thought I would like it a lot. It arrived nicely packaged and when I opened it and saw the pendant and the silver snake chain I ordered to go with it, I was really struck by how stunning it is. The challenge will be to keep it looking so good. Silver tarnishes and so I will no doubt be polishing it quite often but that’s a small price to pay for such a lovely and symbolic pendant. I highly recommend this piece of jewelry.
