Victorian Diamond Coiled Snake Ring
DATE: Victorian, c.1880
A cool (and unusual) antique Snake Ring, modelled in 15 karat yellow gold that has taken on a beautiful matte texture. The head is set with two old cut diamonds, and the snakes body first loops around the finger (two times) before forming an intricate coil at the head... I've never seen such a style, but fell in love with it at once.
Two .10ct old European cut Diamonds
Head: 1.7 x 1.7cm - Width of band: 4.5mm
No marks present, tests as 15k gold
Very good, some general wear commensurate with age and use
