Snakes represent ancient fertility rites and immortality from ancient times. The sensual movements of snakes are seen as an analogy to the movements of the dancer. Snakes have become popular symbols for dance jewelry.
Historically in the Middle East, jewelry is an indication of a womans social and economic status. Part of the dowry would be in jewelry, which would remain the property of the woman after marriage. It is also customary for the husband to give his wife jewelry after she gives birth to each child. Therefore, the more jewelry a woman displays, the higher her status as a married woman and mother.
