A fabulous 18ct gold double snake ring. It is set with a sapphire and an old mine cut diamond and symbolises “Eternal love” because the two snakes are intertwined for ever. This style of ring was popular from the early 19th century. Before that rings were often a single snake and represented “Death” as a huge amount of jewellery was manufactured as mourning jewellery.
