It is our pleasure to feature this rare Victorian snake ring that combines unusual design elements. Firstly, it features three snakes heading in the same direction. Secondly, it combines platinum with 18K gold ( not marked, but tested and guaranteed). Thirdly, it features a ruby, a diamond and a sapphire--one in each head. It is striking on the hand and hugs the finger comfortably.
The ring is size 6 1/2. It could be re-sized slightly with great care. The top measures 1/2 inch--top snake to bottom snake at an angle. The shank is 1/4 inch in width. It weighs 7.3 grams.
Generally when we see double or triple snake rings they are set in a crossover design. This is unique in that all face in the same direction. If snakes are your "thing" in jewelery design this is a perfect addition to any collection.
