SKU: 651
Trust Badge


This sublime antique 18ct Gold snake ring is a wonderful example of Victorian jewellery. It's been lovingly crafted from rich 18ct Yellow Gold and features a sizeable old cut Diamond head that sparkles beautifully.

The ring is hallmarked 1857 and the craftsmanship is second to none. The 18ct Gold is a buttery yellow colour and highly polished giving it an alluring serpentine movement when it catches the light.

It looks beautiful day or night and is sure to be the envy of all your friends! The snake has two subtle indentations as eyes which make for a friendly, endearing face you can't help but fall in love with.

This antique 18ct Gold snake ring is in beautiful condition. The Gold is pristine, completely free from scratches or scuffs and has the most gorgeous warm yellow glow and the Diamond is bright and extremely sparkly.  We believe that at some point the back of the band has been altered (possibly as part of a resizing) since some original hallmarks are no longer present.  The work has been clearly been carried out very carefully though as it's almost impossible to notice, especially when the ring is being worn. All in all a marvellous piece of Victorian craftsmanship and just as lovely today as it ever was!
