Description

This is an absolutely stunning jeweled Mughal style snake bracelet made by Mimi di N in the 1960s and is reminiscent of the finest Indian jewels.

Born in Italy to a jewelry family (her cousin is the great jeweler Fulco di Verdura) Princess Mimi di Niscemi moved to America to study jewelry design and silversmithing at the Philadelphia Museum School. During her training, she worked producing jewelry for Schiaparelli. Later, she designed the jewelry for Arnold Scaasi and Robert DeMario. She started her own jewelry company in 1962 in New York City. In 1968, she won the Great Design in Costume Jewelry Award.

This clamper style bracelet is constructed from gold plated metal that is harlequin patterned and enameled in rich ruby red and emerald green. The head and tail of the snake are ornamented by clear, bright round pave rhinestones. The snake has beautiful emerald green glass cabochon eyes.

This bracelet is signed on the inside "Mimi di N" in an oval cartouche.
