This fine and impressive ruby ring has been crafted in 18 ct yellow gold.

This ring has a smooth finished, sculptured form modelled in the shape of two snakes* entwined.

The serpents' heads are independently ornamented with a claw set old round cut ruby and an Old European round cut diamond also claw set.

The multi strand shank forms on open twist at the shoulders and is continuous under the setting.

The hallmarks to the interior of the shank include the maker's mark 'FHM' for Frank H Mannox, the gold guarantee mark (crown), the 18 ct gold mark (18), the Birmingham Assay Office hallmark (anchor) and the date letter for 1902 (C).

This yellow gold snake 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.

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.
