The snake motif has been utilized in jewelry since the Ancients. Long considered as a symbol of royalty and wisdom, it has been documented that Cleopatra was famous for her snake jewelry. Later, the design was popularized during the Victorian Era when Prince Albert famously presented Queen Victoria with an engagement ring in the form of a snake. Representing eternal love, that ring caused a sensation, and snake jewelry has been a fashion statement ever since.
This ring is crafted of rich yellow 18 karat gold, with deep blue and green enameled scales. A wonderful Victorian Revival design, made circa 1960s, he has a beautifully detailed head, with his intensely sinister eyes and his jagged fangs bared. Ready to strike, he will make the perfect protection ring for you, and send a shiver up your arm when you dare to give him a glance!
