A wonderful, early Victorian snake ring set with a cabochon turquoise in its head and two ruby cabochon eyes. It is 18ct gold and was made circa 1850. Snake rings can symbolise “eternal love”. They also denote death of the old and a birth into untapped power, creativity and wisdom. They are the guardians of sacred places and the keeper of concealed knowledge. Georgian and Victorian jewellery is packed with symbolic meaning and so special to the wearer.
