Antique (1871) 15ct Gold and Diamond Snake Ring

Antique (1871) 15ct Gold and Diamond Snake Ring


We don't buy many snake rings for stock as we are picky about them... but we thought this one was pretty special. Crafted in the most beautiful buttery 15ct gold with the sweetest details that are all still perfectly crisp. The craftsman chose 2 small rose cut diamonds for its twinkly eyes and a sparkling rose cut diamond for the top of the head. The little curly tail is the greatest detailing that sometimes gets worn or lost with time, but this one still has all of its details still crisp and clear.


We also love that it has its full hallmarks, so we know it's an original antique piece from the Victorian era. 


Condition: The ring is in great antique condition with wear commensurate with age. There is some wear that can be seen by the snake's mouth but this does not detract from the design. The diamonds are foil backed which makes them really sparkle - but this does mean that care would need to be taken around water.


Hallmarked: 15.625 for 15ct gold, an anchor for Birmingham and a date letter for the year 1871.


Weight: 4.83g

Size : Fits clost to a UK L - US 5.75 due to the width and thickness of the ring.
