Here we have an outstanding double snake ring crafted from 18ct yellow gold and platinum during the Edwardian period. This ring features two snake heads, one of which is set with a rich cornflower blue coloured sapphire whilst the other is set with a chunky old mine cut diamond. Each focal gemstone here is accompanied by a pair of tiny matching rose cut diamonds for eyes. Distinctive engraving provides definition to the head and bodies which coil around the finger before the tails resume at the shoulders. This piece is exceptionally made and is suitable for both ladies and men.

Snake rings became extremely popular during the Victorian era, so much so in fact they were continually produced beyond this period and were often worn with a serpent style bangle, brooch, or hatpin.

The snake ring peaked in popularity when Queen Victoria opted for a gold snake design set with rubies, diamonds, and an emerald for her engagement ring; a particularly unusual style. As time wore on, snake jewellery and other Ancient Egypt inspired pieces (such as insect jewellery) came into fashion due to influences on Britain from the excavation of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
