Victorian Sapphire Snake Ring

$1,500

This lovely Victorian crossover ring is fashioned in the shape and set with a single .17ct sapphire. 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 is beautifully detailed with engraved eyes and scales and is rendered in the act of biting its tail.
