This exceptional, fine and impressive antique Edwardian ring has been crafted in 18 ct yellow gold.
The ring has a substantial, multi-strand form, modelled in the shape of two intertwined snakes*.
The serpents' heads are independently ornamented with a 0.29 ct round faceted cut sapphire and a 0.24 ct Dutch cut diamond.
The multi strand shank form integrates in to the design, forming both the head and tail of each snake.
The interior of the ring shank features the contemporary engraved inscription 'Henley - 1907 - Strasbourg, a Rodolphe Toma le doyeune'**.
This antique gemstone serpent ring has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18 ct gold.
The ring is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
NOTE: * Snakes were a universally popular expression of eternal love or a powerful symbol of wisdom.
** Due to the nature of this inscription this piece may have been engraved to commemorate the 1907 European Rowing Championships which were noted to be held in Strasbourg; the coxswain of many Belgian gold medals for this event was Rodolphe Colbaert.
Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
