Natural Sapphire and Diamond Eyed Snake Ring

$5,800

About

Three coils of 18 Kt gold, a wiggly extending tail that rests comfortably just above the knuckle, an oval sapphire of 1.25 cts and the finest workmanship of any serpent ring I have seen, is available for purchase. The eyes are mini diamond specks, just a pinpoint. A deep blue sapphire tops the head, set deeply in a closed setting. This is a graceful, elegant and luxurious ring. The condition is superb. Size 8 to 8 1/2 U.S. English origin c. 1880. Queen Elizabeth chose such a ring upon her engagement to Prince Albert. The snake when coiled head upon tail becomes like a love knot and a symbol of eternal, unending love. This loving symbol of attachment can also honor a friendship.
