Victorian 14kt Gold Diamond Snake Ring 0.75ctw
The snake has been a powerful image since the Victorian era and continues to be popular even in modern jewelry. It has been an inspiration for jewelry design for ages, often used to symbolize eternity, everlasting love, life and protection.
This stunning snake ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era is magnificent! Made of 14kt yellow gold, this fabulous piece portrays a single snake, whose body coils around the finger to form the band. The snake's head holds five old Mine Cut diamonds which graduate in size, accenting the vibrant yellow gold beautifully. Simple gold bead eyes and a charming open mouth complete the ornate snake's facial features and the overall approximate diamond weight is 0.75ctw. A wonderful piece for any snake lover, it looks fantastic when worn and would make a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of a 7 but could be re-sized slightly.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is great. There is some normal surface wear to the gold band but besides this, there is no serious damage to the ring and all of the diamonds are intact.
