Victorian Diamond Double Snake Ring c.1883
A stylish Victorian double snake with each snake set with an old cut diamond to the top of the head. The ouroboros, a circular depiction of a snake swallowing its own tail is a symbol of eternity.
Snake rings became popular after Queen Victoria was presented with a continuous snake ring as her engagement ring from Price Albert. The ring, which signified everlasting love for eternity, had an emerald, her birthstone, centered in its head. Her ring set a trend throughout England to wear a snake as a symbol of love.
The snakes in our beautiful ring are inter-twined signifying an unending circle and a token of love and affection. Diamonds are set representing eternity.
This lovely ring is fully hallmarked and low set to the finger, easy to wear on an everyday basis.
