Some time back I ran a post on the popularity of snake jewelry as I was mystified by its popularity. Since then, I've been amazed at how quickly we sell snake bangles when we list them in OUR SHOP AT RUBY LANE. I had the rare Egyptian sterling silver bangle shown on the

left listed for less than 24 hours and it was sold. Of course, the price was right and the piece was a collector's delight. You can still read up on that one by clicking on the photo.

The same has happened with all my snake bangles i.e. listed today, gone in no time. So the lure and appeal of snake bangles is obviously timeless and ongoing.

That's why I'm thrilled to have come across the fabulous sterling silver COBRA bangle shown at the top of this blog. This isn't just another snake bangle: this one is different! That cobra head is upright, ready to strike. It's very flexible so it can fit any size wrist or be worn high on the arm. While I've never personally been a fan of snake jewelry, I warmed to this one immediately because it was so unique. Weighing just under 20 grams of sterling silver, it's a slender 1/8" wide, keeping it feminine and sexy! You can read all about it and see more photos by clicking on the photo at the top of this blog or HERE.

If snake bangles aren't your thing, but you love sterling silver bangles, you might like to take a closer look at the lovely FORSTNER Sterling silver bangle shown on the right which we've just listed in OUR SHOP AT RUBY LANE. We acquired this one at an estate auction about a month back. It's in wonderful condition with beautiful etchings. Complete with safety chain, it weighs 19 grams of sterling silver and opens to a full 3 1/2" to accomodate even a large wrist. It's 1/2" wide and very, very pretty. At only $49, it's a steal!

We still have our beautiful BIRKS Sterling silver bangle on sale in our booth at BONANZLE too. It's only $50 OBO and includes shipping! WOW! A signed Birks original for such a low price? Click on the link to check it out now too.

We'll have more sterling silver items to list in the next while, including a TIFFANY charm bracelet and an unsigned Sterling silver multi-link charm bracelet. So be sure to subscribe to our blog to stay on top of any new additions to our online shops. HAPPY CANADA DAY everyone!
