An 18ct yellow gold and diamond double serpent ring from the Victorian period. A double headed serpent coils tightly around the finger, with two characterful heads set with old and rose cut diamonds. The serpent has been seen in jewellery for thousands of years, and has represented many things, including good, evil, rebirth, poison, fertility and death. Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1819-1861) presented Queen Victoria with a serpent shaped engagement ring in 1839, which brought serpent formed jewellery back into fashion and saw pieces viewed as symbols of eternal love. This sentiment was carried through into the Edwardian era with the beautiful and stylish Queen Alexandra (1844-1925), who dictated styles and tastes during her short reign. She was often seen wearing an iconic snake bangle, which has been captured in many of the portraits painted of her. Bearing prominent hallmarks for London in 1887, this is a particularly collectible example of this iconic style.
Perfect to wear and enjoy today as the ultimate symbol of eternal love.
