A gleaming Victorian snake ring circa 1880 crafted in sterling silver and 10k rose gold with a rich antique patina; designed as two coiled serpents with gently nested heads, the eyes of the silver set with glittering genuine rubies and the gold set with sparkling old mine-cut diamonds. Perfect for stacking, worn alone or as a companion to other interesting pieces. Measuring approximately 3/8" north to south at the face and 3/16" at the center back of the band. Currently size 9 scant and resizable down at least two full sizes without issue. Please convo me before purchase if you are interested in our sizing service. To paraphrase over a millennia of meaning the snake symbolizes eternal love and faithfulness, healing, fertility, wisdom and even immortality. The motif of triple snakes also refers to the trilogy concept of past, present and future, and has been described in Far Eastern mythology as a symbol of emotional balance, making this a lovely choice as an alternative wedding or engagement ring. By the same token it would be a thoughtful and poignant anniversary or friendship gift. Rubies can symbolize a sincere and passionate bond while the diamond is traditionally considered a stone of fidelity, and eternal regard. In excellent antique condition with a gorgeous patina, slight thinning and some light wear to the details. Not marked for metal content but acid tests to sterling silver and 10k gold.
