Antique Gold and Diamond Serpent Ring

About

An Antique 18 karat gold snake ring with diamonds. The eyes of the snake are 2 round old European-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .04 carat. Circa 1880. Serpents and their symbolism are discussed in The Triumph of Love Jewellery 1530-1930, by Geoffrey C. Munn, Thames and Hudson, 1993,. “... this ancient symbol stressed the metaphor of eternal love. All kinds of snake jewels were popular gifts in the nineteenth century, not least because they carried this covert yet fundamental message to the recipient.” Discussed in Triumph of Love Jewellery 1530-1930, by Geoffrey C. Munn, Thames & Hudson, 1993. Ring size: 5-1/2; this ring can be sized. (MG #18191)
