Since ancient times, the image of the snake has been controversial. Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden by the temptation of the serpent to steal the forbidden fruit. From then on, the serpent was seen as the embodiment of evil. In Greek mythology, snakes are often seen as symbols of healing, death, and rebirth. People also put forward the idea that dragons come from snakes, which have been recognized by most scholars. Because of this controversial image, snakes appear in a variety of works such as legends, novels, and paintings.
Later, the image of the snake was applied to the jewelry thanks to Queen Victoria’s preference for serpentine. She treats the snake totem as a blessing to his own amulet. She hopes that she can possess the “snake’s wisdom” and can govern the country with wisdom. So in the Victorian period, serpentine patterns became a trend.
