0.63 ct Sapphire and 0.77 ct Diamond, 18 ct Yellow Gold Snake Ring - Antique Circa 1900


A stunning, fine and impressive antique 0.63 carat sapphire and 0.77 carat diamond, 18 carat yellow gold snake ring; part of our diverse antique jewellery collections

SKU C7513

This stunning, fine and impressive antique Victorian 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 0.63 ct oval faceted cut sapphire and a 0.62 ct Old European pear cut diamond.

Each snake's head is further ornamented with two Dutch cut diamonds representing the eyes; this indicates the high quality of the piece.

The multi strand shank form integrates into the design, forming both the head and tail of each snake.

The interior of the shank is hallmarked with the gold guarantee mark (crown), the 18 ct gold mark (18), the Birmingham Assay Office hallmark (anchor) and the date letter for 1900 (a).

This impressive ring is supplied with an independent diamond grading report certificate for the feature stone, in addition to an independent diamond and gemstone grading report card for the sapphire and supporting stones.

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.
