The first thoughts one has about a Femme Fatale are usually: Power, Conspiracy and Murder. So she definitely is a perilous women, and she also has something of a warrior. Look at those Headpieces: don’t they symbolize this dark side of the Femme Fatale perfectly?

The Femme Fatale is also a  Seductress, she can hypnotize her victims. What jewelry does one wear to lead one’s victim astray? Snakes clearly should be an emblem for Femmes Fatales. See Bonnaud’s Salome, she wears them both on her arm and like a crown… she looks so majestic.

Wearing Rings on Every Finger like the beautiful Valeska Suratt does, denotes a very strong feminity too. And if you want the Cleopatra touch, wear Scarabs!

The Femme Fatale’s ultimate weapon: Pearls! It’s rather genius actually, pearls symbolize perfection and they give a tone of innocence to the one who wears them! The Femme Fatale definitely Is a Jewelry Icon!
