Edwardian Mixed Metals Garnet & Diamond Triple Snake Ring
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.
A rare triple snake ring from the Edwardian (ca1880) era! This stylish piece has an unusual design that combines a trio of snakes, as opposed to the more common single and double snake varieties. The ring has a mixed metals setting with the 2 outer snakes made of 14kt rose gold, and the middle snake made of platinum. The snakes' wrapped bodies form a stacked band, while their heads meet at the center, their tails curling around their necks. The rose gold snakes have a single garnet set in the back of their head and the platinum snake adorns a sparkling diamond. The multi gemstone and mixed metals design looks absolutely wonderful on and the piece would be perfect for any snake lover!
Measurements: The ring has a large finger size of 7.5, but could be resized. The band measures 1/2" at the widest point in the front, and is 1/4" wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and platinum setting or to the gemstones, all of which are intact.
