Victorian Sapphire & Diamond Snake Ring

$2,600

A Victorian coiled snake ring with a .34ct sapphire set at the crown of its head. The snake was employed in vast amounts of Victorian and Edwardian jewelry as a symbol of everlasting love - in fact, Queen Victoria's own engagement featured a snake set with an emerald. This serpent, eyes sparkling with rose cut diamonds, coils three times around the finger, its head and tail neatly crossed at the face.
