*Please note box is for display only*

Charming double headed snake ring crafted in Birmingham with full UK hallmarks and date letter for 1968.

Worn since ancient times but popularised by Queen Victoria in 1839 when her beloved Prince Albert presented her with, for the time, an unconventional engagement ring styled as a Serpent and set with an Emerald, Diamonds and Rubies.

With a variety of symbolic meanings including commitment and wisdom, intertwined love, fertility and infinity but most of all endless enduring love it is no wonder this popular style has endured through the ages.

This bright 9ct yellow gold example is set with two faceted bright red Rubies (manmade) to the crowns of their sweet little heads which accents the gold beautifully.

Quite wide at 1.3cm x 1.8cm, smooth and comfortable to wear, this low rise ring is possible the perfect every day go anywhere ring!
