This is a lovely Double snake ring, crafted of 18 carat yellow gold, with two rose cut diamonds, between 15 to 20 points each in size, though we can't weigh Rose Cut Diamonds the way we weigh modern cut diamonds. That estimation is just to give you an idea of the size of the stones. The ring is a size 7 and 1/2, though it could be sized by someone used to working with antique jewelry. It weighs 4.5 grams. The band itself is substantial and 1/4 of an inch wide The ring's hallmarks are fully visible, and I have tried my best to get a good photo of them, but after 25 tries, I have given up until better light. I think you can see that they exist though. They are marked with an 18, showing that the ring is 18 Carat gold, crafted in Chester, England, in the year 1904. As many of you may know, the snake is a symbol for immortality, and Queen Victoria's engagement ring was a snake ring. This is a nice example, and the ring is in excellent condition.
