Snakes have a long and rich history in jewelry dating back to Ancient Greece and Rome, where snakes were used to symbolize wisdom. The Victorians often used snakes to symbolize everlasting love, with a coiled snake in particular representing eternity. Queen Victoria herself had a snake ring from her beloved Albert. This snake ring is a beautiful example. Made late in the Victorian era, circa 1872, from rich 15 karat yellow gold. At the center of the head is a rose cut diamond, and petite rubies as the eyes.
