This wonderful Georgian gold and silver snake ring is closed-back set with two ruby faceted ruby eyes, and 38 rose-cut diamonds in silver bezels, all are gold backed. The head and tail are detailed, and as the ring wraps around the finger, the snake’s head passes his tail, symbolizing eternity.

This snake ring is not easily sizeable as it is paved with diamonds; it is currently a size 6.

English, ca. 1790-1810.
