Early Victorian Snake Ring with Ruby
A gorgeous and quintessential piece of victorian snake jewelry. When I found it, I knew I’d have to find it a special home. It is hand crafted in beautiful 15k gold with a ruby stone bezel set into his head.
Queen Victoria was presented with a gorgeous ouroboros engagement ring by her then fiancé Prince Albert. The ouroboros symbolizes rebirth, renewal, and eternal love. While snakes and the ouroboros symbolism have been found in jewelry for hundreds of years, Victoria’s engagement ring inspired a whole new round of snake jewelry during her reign.
