Our absolute favourite style of snake ring - big, bold, and dripping in diamonds! These gorgeous coiled rings were traditionally made as men's rings, so are often found in the larger size ranges, but are a beautiful unisex jewelry option. Snakes were particularly popular in the Victorian era as a symbol of eternal and passionate love - Queen Victoria even wore a snake as her engagement ring.

Many of these rings bear some marks of past sizing, but this ring appears to be intact (though it could be carefully sized a little in either direction) - however, some stone replacements have given a slightly patchwork effect with three having a deep greenish-yellow hue, while two have more of a greyish undertone. These snakes are prized for their unique faces and character, and the wonky diamonds only add to its unique appearance.
