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 unique snake ring from the Georgian (ca1750) era is quite remarkable! Made of 15kt gold and topped in sterling silver, the ring depicts a single snake, whose body and tail coil around the finger to form the band. Set in the center of the snake's head and all along its body are old Rose Cut diamonds, which are individually set in box-like links that resemble scales. The largest diamonds rest in the snake's head, while the smallest stones accent the tip of its tail. Two delicate ruby stones represent the snake's eyes, while a forked tongue sticking out of the mouth completes the snake's facial features. A wonderful piece for any snake lover, it looks fantastic when worn and would make an incredible addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of a 4.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold and sterling setting. All of the diamonds and both rubies are intact.
