Snake jewelry has been popular since the ancient Egyptians. This is the first time I have had a snake ring. It is sterling silver, made in Mexico and signed GM. The artist has taken the time to inlay a bit of abalone along the head of the snake. This ring can be adjusted to almost any size. Right now it is a size 7. It is in excellent condition and weighs about 9 grams. It is in excellent condition with some minor patina which can easily be polished away.
