Precious Gems Victorian Snake Ring

Snakes are a popular jewelry theme, and Victorian snake rings are especially thought to be a romantic sort of jewelry. We have no clue how snakes are supposed to be romantic, but okay! Queen Victoria actually used a snake ring as her engagement ring to Prince Albert. So…well, who knows! “Crafted from acid tested 14k rose gold, a bejeweled double-headed serpent ring sparkles with excitement and life.” The ring has an old mine cut diamond, a natural ruby and small etching details show the eyes, scales, and little mouths. “In very good condition. Continental in origin and dates to circa 1880.” Via Ruby Lane
