A stylish 18ct gold snake ring set with a pear shaped turquoise in it’s head. It has two tiny rose diamonds for it’s eyes. It was made circa 1830-1840 and has the typical repousse work on the gold around it’s head of that period, and a good wide shank. Snakes featured heavily in the myths of ancient Greece and Rome. They were reviled for their ability to shed their skin, meaning that they were seen as a symbol of regeneration and rebirth. This association with regeneration and fertility suggests links to the Georgian and Victorian connotations between snakes and “Eternal love”. The use of the turquoise means “Forget me not” after the flower of the same name.
