Antique Garnet & 19k Gold Snake Ring
Ubiquitous in its presence and symbolism, the snake or serpent motif has been with us since, well…the Garden of Eden. Four wraps of 19k yellow gold sensuously embrace and coil around the finger. From its faceted garnet head, the width slowly descends toward the tail. Appointments of chased gold work in an intriguing pattern of swirls emulate scales on the fore and aft of the ring.

Hallmarks: Two unidentified hallmarks on the back of exterior.
Measurements: ½ of an inch (1.2 cm) at the widest and 5/16 of an inch (0.8 cm) wide at the back. This ring has a weight of 4.1 grams (2.6 dwt).
