Turquoise, the captivating sea-green to aqua stone of the ancients, represents wisdom, tranquility, protection, good fortune, and hope. Ancient peoples believed in its profound power to protect, as well as its calming energy and its association with enduring love. Snakes represent eternal love when worn as jewelry; Queen Victoria received a snake betrothal ring from her beloved Prince Albert, and the motif has endured as an intriguing theme ever since.
The turquoise and diamond stones in this beauty are from an estate piece, which we married with this replica of an antique snake ring. The solid pale blue turquoise cabochon is surrounded by glittering diamonds set in 18 karat white gold with an 18 karat yellow gold back. The 14 karat yellow gold replica snake shank coils around the ring top, as though protecting its egg. Or, is the snake the predator, encircling a nest and ready to abscond with the robin's egg blue gem? Either way, it's a fun and eye-catching drama ready to slip onto your hand!
