Snakes on a Chain

The encrusted collar necklace exudes exotic elegance



The serpent collar necklace comes from Alexis Bittar’s Jardin de Papillon (Garden of the Butterfly) collection.

COURTESY OF SAKS FIFTH AVENUE

In Chinese astrology, 2013 is the year of the snake — a symbol of powerful sensuality, refinement, and grace. People born into the zodiac snake sign are said to exude exquisite style and taste. With this exotic and beautiful serpent collar necklace by Alexis Bittar, anyone can ever so subtly command attention. Part of the Jardin de Papillon (Garden of the Butterfly) collection, the intricate statement piece hisses pretty-meets-punk. The ruthenium-plated and gold-tone snake, biting its own tail, features a sodalite and white quartz doublet, pyrite and Swarovski crystals, and lobster-clasp closure.

$795, at Saks Fifth Avenue in The Gardens on El Paseo, Palm Desert.
