Victorian Snake Ring, Opal Diamond
9k rose gold Victorian snake ring set with an old cut diamond and one opal.
The rose gold in this ring manifests very well, displaying the light chasing on the heads and one visible tail distinctly.
The ring appears as ‘double-headed’ but is really two snakes coiled together, each snake having its own head and tail. One tail is revealed, the other tucked behind the ring. The two snakes extend into a double channel shank. The ring is unmarked but is likely to date between early to mid Victorian.
Throughout history, snake rings worn in different cultures expressed notions of power or ideals of love. Snake rings in antique English jewelry were often designed as memento or sentimental rings, with a lock of hair or garment, or as love ‘knot’ rings where two or sometimes three snakes intertwine in embrace.
We are especially fond of snake rings because the snake, never completely disassociated with the serpent, bellies, coils and uncoils itself though life. There is danger, there is grace; the challenge always desirable, the unattainable always memorable.

For international customers, please get in touch with us if you can’t find anyone locally to fix it. Send the item back and we will fix it for you. We may or may not charge a service fee for repair work; this depends on how much work there is to be done. We offer this service hardly to make money. We offer this service because of the nature of work that we do. Many pieces of antique jewellery are not serviced properly in modern jewellery stores (unless you have a personal relationship with the store owners). What we do for our local customers, we offer to our international customers. We hope this is our added advantage. We only charge when we upsize rings by two sizes and above. We charge approximately SGD70 (USD50) for upsizing, but may increase this fee by a little depending on the ring size and complexity of the job. Much of period-authentic Chinese jewellery can be collected, and passed on as a set. Two or more pieces will easily exceed SGD10,000. We offer this as we too are always excited when we can acquire jewellery a whole set. And we think you may too. Please us for details.
