Fascinated by the ripple of a snake’s skin as it slithers, Elisabetta de Simone Niquesa sought to recreate this sense of movement without encompassing the serpent’s head, a well-explored motif in fine jewellery. The resulting collection, Ophidian, sees engraved 18-carat white, yellow and rose gold representing the snake’s scales, wending its way around the fingers, arms and earlobes.
