Product information

Antique Rose Gold Snake Ring….
Snakes have been used in Jewellery for thousands of years but were particularly popular during the Victorian era.
Prince Albert gave Victoria a Snake ring for her engagement as a symbolic gesture. Snakes were romantically symbolic for Victorians as protectors and also never ending love.
This one is particularly nice as it is double headed and the snakes are wrapped around each other.
Looking at the way these have been put together and the fact that each is hallmarked separately, It is possible these were a pair of rings matching rings, worn by two single people as engagement rings and then put together when married.
It is rather untidy at the back of the snakes heads and there is some wear inside – I suspect it has also been made larger at some stage but the front all looks good so not noticeable when worn.
Fully hallmarked in Birmingham and has the date letter for 1915. There is also a makers mark.
The heads are set with faceted purple Amethysts. I love the detail and hand engraving, open mouths and the way the snake coils round and round the finger – it even has a tail. It is 12mm depth at the front and 6mm at the back.
This lovely ring would be suitable for both male (pinkie ring) and female fingers.
