Story

The snake is a motif which has been used throughout history to represent wisdom, regeneration and completion as well as a number of other associations. When in a coiled position, such as this example, the symbolism takes on cosmic proportions.

During the Victorian an Edwardian periods the snake ring was a fashionable romantic image for eternal love. Here we see a sensuous triple coiled example rendered in 18k yellow gold with incised eyes and a head studded with a graduated series of two (2) old European and three (3) old single cut diamonds with an estimated total of .23 carats. Generously proportioned, the ring displays well on the hand and feels silken as only gently and ceaselessly caressed gold can.

Date: 1902.
