Victorian Ruby & Diamond Serpents Signet Ring
DATE: Mid Victorian, 1873
An extra special antique signet ring, the oval bloodstone panel is surrounded by two snakes. It's modelled in 15k gold, with Birmingham hallmarks dating to the year 1873. The snakes have gem-set eyes, one with rubies the other with rose cut diamonds. A rare example, and ultra cool.
