    A gorgeous snake ring from the Victorian period, c1880s. The ring is made from 18ct gold and is a lovely fine coil of gold that snakes around the finger. To the head is a little rose cut diamond set in a rub over setting. The snake coils up the finger and looks very elegant on the hand. There is a little etching to the head, though this has worn slightly, and the coiled body has a lovely smooth appearance. A lovely and tactile piece.
