Story

Although snake motif rings have been popular during the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco eras, once again the English “Belle Époque” (otherwise known as the Edwardian era or “The Gilded Age”) brought a new-found elegance to jewelry.

The form of this turn of the 20th century ring stands out from its usual brethren. It has been designed to showcase each of the thirty-one (31) sparkling diamonds set on the head and along the length of undulating body of the snake in 18k yellow gold. A substantial old European cut diamond of about .40 carats crowns our reptilian companion and focuses our attention to the old mine cut diamond studded eyes to warn of the open jaws and exposed fangs of a beast ready to strike.

The old mine cuts along the body graduate in size from 1 to 5 points and bring the total estimated diamond weight to 1.00 carats with a color range of H-J and VS2-SI clarity range.
