Serpent MidiRing

$360

The snake motif has been employed for millennia and by countless cultures to represent the cycle of death and rebirth. Prince Albert famously gave Queen Victoria a serpent ring for their engagement, sparking a snake jewelry craze that would last the entirety of her 60-year reign. Inspired by the many antique snake rings that have passed through our collection, we decided to make our own. Let him curl around your pinky or the second knuckle of your finger.

theInspiration

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung saw the ouroboros as an archetype and the basic mandala of alchemy.

Image: The first known appearance of the ouroboros motif is in the "Enigmatic Book of the Netherworld", an ancient Egyptian funerary text found in the tomb of Tutankhamun, 14th century BC.
