The Victorians were fascinated with the snake motif and one can still find so many examples in all manner of 19th century jewels, but none more prolific than the snake ring.  There are many different iterations, from coiled snakes to those that tangle on top of the finger. This little serpent is coiled around its treasure, a blood-red garnet cabochon, and decorated with a single diamond on its neck. It's the perfect little gem if you want to feel like a powerful sorceress!
