It may be the Year of the Horse, but the snake is having a moment.
Ever since Sophia Bush debuted a killer set of tsavorite-encrusted Jacob & Co. snake ear cuffs (and clutch and watch), the reptilian motif has slithered its way into our hearts and onto the red carpet. Just a couple days later, Naomi Watts offset her ladylike yellow lace Preen dress with a fierce-yet-brilliant diamond Bulgari snake that rested deliciously around her neck. The next evening, Selena Gomez also crossed into serpentine territory by subtlety accessorizing her cut-out Cushnie et Ochs separates with a Porter Lyons snake ring (below).
Who knew that the reptile could be such a charmer? That's why we rounded up 14 standout jewelry pieces that should snake their way into your accessory rotation—stat!
