18K Gold and Diamond Edwardian Snake Ring
This is a stunning 18K Gold and Diamond Edwardian snake ring. Serpents are one of the oldest mythological symbols and remain as popular in jewelry as they did in the time of ancient Egypt. Snake jewelry was particularly popular after Prince Albert proposed to Queen Victoria with a ring that was in the image of a snake. Since then, snakes have a remained as a symbol for eternal love. This particular ring was made in 1917, as dictated by the marks on the inside of the band. The ring is stamped with “BHJ” which is the seal for B.H. Joseph & Co.. B.H. Joseph & Co, 1865-1929, was incorporated into Payton, Pepper & Co Ltd in 1929. This ring is remarkably well marked, from the hallmarks it has been determined that the ring is indeed 18K gold and was made in Birmingham, England in 1917. Also engraved on the inside of the band is “1975”—possibly the year in which the ring was gifted to a loved one. This piece is truly romantic. Two serpents wrap around one’s finger symbolizing lovers intertwined. On the head of each snake is a European-cut diamond. The diamonds are 0.25 carat and SL-1. The diamonds each have a diameter of approximately 2.60 mm. The ring is a size 8—however, due to the pattern of the band it is not possible for the ring to be resized. The ring weighs 7.40 grams. This piece would be the perfect addition to any collection or a wonderful gift for a loved one!
