Antique 18kt gold sapphire and diamond serpent ring


We have a bit of a thing for serpent rings. This one is a beautiful example. Set in luxurious 18kt yellow gold with a fine deep blue sapphire on one side and a old cut diamond on the other. The sapphire is an estimated 0.3cts and the diamond 0.2cts. Both stunning old cut stones with chunky facets. There are also small little eyes, each set with small faceted diamonds. It is currently a size “M” but can be sized to fit almost any finger. It is very unsual and the quality of the gems in this serpent ring are top quality.

The snake motif was a favorite of the Victorians and rings were no exception. It was popularised when Prince Albert presented Queen Victoria with a snake ring in 1839. The snakes are often intertwined to represent the connection of the people involved. These rings were produced in various qualities and with various stones. This is a high quality 18kt gold, sapphire and diamond example.
