Amazing Georgian double-headed snake eternity diamond ring

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This wonderful Georgian gold and silver double-headed eternity snake ring is close-back set with two faceted ruby (paste?) eyes, two faceted emerald (paste?) eyes in gold bezels, and 8 old mine-cut diamonds (3-3.5mm each) in silver bezels. The entire ring is gold-backed.

The two heads are detailed, and as the ring wraps around the finger, each snake head passes around the scaled shoulders leading to an undecorated verso, more scales, and the second snake head, symbolizing eternity.

This double snake head ring is currently a size 9 – 9 ¼ and could be sized as the heads to not touch each other and the central back shank is undecorated.

This unusual eternity ring is English, ca. 1790-1810, and is dazzling!
