Is this everyone's favourite jewellery at Cannes?

May 25, 2017 16:20 IST

The serpent jewellery is a popular choice among stars on the Cannes red carpet.

Snake-inspired jewellery was popular among the Roman and Greek women because it was believed to be a sign of eternity.

Some others believed that wearing it was a sign of fertility and helped ward of evil.

Whether or not the modern women believe in these legends, turns out, serpent-inspired jewellery is a hit on the red carpet.

But she wasn't alone.
