A wonderful late 19th century Victorian double-headed snake ring crafted in 18k yellow gold set with a mix of old mine-cut and antique single-cut diamonds along the top of each head. Twined and linked the two snakes face in opposite directions forming a double banded effect all around the shank; thick and comfortably smooth the ring is beautifully crafted with a satisfying weight on the hand. A centuries old reference to eternal love and faithfulness. Perfect for stacking, worn alone or as a companion to other antique pieces. This would also make a fantastic choice as an alternative engagement or wedding band. Measuring approximately 1/2" north to south at the front, tapering to a 4.68 mm width at the center back. Currently size 9 and resizable about two full sizes. Please convo me before purchase if you are interested in our sizing service. The snake is a symbol rich in meaning stemming back thousands of years to some of our first attempts at communication with imagery. In 1840 when Prince Albert gave Queen Victoria an engagement ring in the shape of a snake with an emerald set head it refired the craze for not only snake rings but also other types of serpentine adornment. To paraphrase over a millennia of meaning the snake symbolizes eternal love, healing, fertility, wisdom and even immortality. As given to Victoria by Albert it represented the infinite and eternal quality of the love they felt for each other and symbolized their belief in their eternal life together. Pretty heady stuff. The original patina has been left intact as it speaks to the history of this piece. In excellent condition with minimal wear and some age-related thinning to the band. Marked for 18k gold content with English hallmarks.
