This coiled snake ring has it all; style, provenance, and a great look. Hallmarked Chester for the year 1895, the ring coils around three times and has a diamond studded head and is further embellished with gold eyes. The ring fits sizes 6.75 to a 7.25 and with its 3 + coils completely wraps the finger above the knuckle. The serpent symbolism dates from ancient times and was a hugely popular Victorian motif owing to Queen Victoria who popularized snake rings when she received a snake ring as her wedding ring from her beloved Prince Albert.
