This is a fantastic Victorian Revival sterling silver diamond and turquoise ring. A contemporary ring that is beautifully made, molded from an original Victorian ring and cast into silver form. Crafted with the utmost care, the stones are antique and set in the Victorian era style.
This ring is a pleasure to wear around the finger featuring two snake reliefs. One has a 2.5 mm diamond set on the top of its head, and the other has a 2 mm turquoise stone set on the top of its head. The ring weighs 3.2 grams and it’s a size 6 1/2". The band measures 3.4 mm in width and the snake centerpiece measures about 8.5 mm at the widest point.
This ring is a perfect gift of love. The snake symbol is often found in jewelry and dates back to the Ancient Greek era. It was made very popular for eternal love by Prince Albert and Queen Victoria in the mid 19th century. Because of their interwoven bodies, snakes resemble a love-knot and have come to represent faithful romantic love and friendship. A fantastic item with a contemporary and classic look, this ring would make a great gift or addition to your jewelry collection!
