At only $16, this ring by Susan Caplan is one hot fashion find. Kick off Chinese New Year with this animal-inspired snake ring from asos.com for a trendy finishing touch. We love the look of this vintage gold ring paired with funky flats and minimal makeup.
Snake chain necklace
Shopbop.com is offering this gorgeous gold-tone necklace by Juliet & Company for $61. The snake chain look is ultra sleek and very fashionable. Because the chain is thick and statement-worthy, it’s best to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Trust us, this piece speaks for itself!

Viper two-finger ring
The two-finger ring has been all the rage this past year, and it’s a trend that’s here to stay. This animal-inspired ring is only $12 at nastygal.com. We love it with a biker-chic look — think leather, high-heeled boots and a studded bag.
Snake spring ring
More at the luxe end of things, this ring by CC Skye — a brand favourite of many Hollywood celebs — is elegant and fashionable, and can be found on revolveclothing.com for $110. We love the dainty look and the touch of sparkle, which work together to make this piece an ideal accessory for the ultra-feminine fashionista.
Snake-embossed leather wrap bracelet
At $265, this Alexander McQueen piece from saksfifthavenue.com is definitely one to spoil yourself with. Made of leather embossed with a snakeskin pattern and adorned with the signature McQueen skull charm, we say indulge!
