18 carat gold antique snake ring set with rubies and diamonds.
This antique snake ring is set with three mine cut diamonds and two single cut diamonds. The mine cut diamond is also affectionately called cushion cut diamonds, as they have a somewhat squarish shape similar to a cushion.
The snake design in jewellery goes back to Roman times and was also often seen in Georgian and Victorian times. Representing an eternal love, this romantic style has been seen throughout the ages. Indeed Queen Victoriaâ€™s own engagement ring was a snake ring set with rubies, emeralds and diamonds. This entwined double antique snake ring was made in 18 carat yellow gold and set with two European cut diamonds. Made by hand, it has such a smooth and tactile feel to it.
