We love snake jewellery and couldn't help but be drawn to the vibrancy of this wrap around snake ring!
It's made of gold on silver (it is not solid gold) and the snake's head has two small glinting diamond eyes and a bright green emerald too. The snake's body is also decorated all the way around too with 29 small rubies so its truly beautiful from all angles.
The ring weighs approx 5g and the snake's head is approx 7.1mm wide. The snake's body at the back of the ring is approx 4.3mm wide.
Ring size - approx a US size 7-7.5 / approx a UK O-P. Because of the open style of the ring it can wear a little snugger or larger but it isn't particularly flexible so we wouldn't suggest the size can be altered significantly. Due to the stones being set all the way around, the ring cannot be resized.
Without any hallmarks, it is hard to date the ring exactly but we think it's likely pre-owned rather than vintage (under 20 years old).
Condition - The ring does show some signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold and stones. Some of the rubies have nibbles and chips. One ruby (the fith stone in from the start of the tail, in the middle front of the ring has a noticable chip). The last four photos have been taken with a loupe to show a magnified view of the stones and their condition. Please see photos.
*Please note the antique box pictured is not included in the sale but the ring will be shipped in a new presentation ring box and pouch*
