15k Victorian snake ring set with two natural ruby ‘eyes’.
This snake ring is not so much a love knot (as many snake rings are) as it is entwined. The two heads entwined is the draw of the ring, spanning across the visible finger and giving a ‘plush’ fullness through its chased scales and dimensional curves.
While this is a more ‘old-fashioned’ design of snake friendship and romance rings, it is also harder to come by.
Each snake has its own head and tail, with both tails tucked behind the ring, in a double channel shank.
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.
