A beautiful 18ct gold double snake ring that was made circa 1900-1910. It is set with a pear shaped ruby and a green garnet and tiny rose diamond in the two snakes eyes. “Demantoid garnets”, as they are called were sourced in Russia and are rare and valuable stones. Although garnets have been known since ancient times, the demantoid variety was not discovered until 1868 in Russia’s Ural Mountains. The miners began comparing it to diamond as it had high brilliance and dispersion, and referred to it as “demantoid”, from the Dutch “”demant”,” meaning diamond. It quickly became a treasured and expensive gemstone. Peter Carl Fabergé often set them in to his jewellery. So this ring is quite special with the two intertwined snakes, suggesting that it was intended as a token of love and affection.
