Victorian 18kt Gold Diamond + Ruby Snake Ring 1.35ctw

SKU: 41460

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 late Victorian (ca1900) era is magnificent! Crafted in rich 18kt 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, and two cabochon rubies represent its eyes. A charming open mouth and rich scaled texture throughout completes the ornate snake's features and collectively, the overall approximate diamond weight is 1.35ctw. The shank is stamped "18.CT." A wonderful piece for any snake lover, it looks fantastic when worn and would make a perfect addition to any collection!

Measurements: Gold balls have been added to the shank of the ring to prevent the piece from moving when worn. These balls could easily be removed if desired but in the current state, the ring has a finger size 6. It could be re-sized slightly if needed.

Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting and all of the diamonds and rubies are intact.
