A gorgeous vintage snake ring, more suggestive than explicit in style even with its small smile and tapered & tucked tail. The snake is one of the oldest motifs in jewelry history - from the ancient Egyptian ouroboros to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's 1839 engagement, the snake was used to represent life and death, rebirth, passion, and power. Victoria and Albert's choice of an emerald-set snake as an engagement ring set off a widespread surge in popularity that lasted through her reign and beyond.

Good vintage condition with reasonable wear in line with age and use.
