The Story

Snakes have a long and rich history in jewelry dating back to Ancient Greece and Rome, where snakes symbolized wisdom. The Victorians often used snakes to symbolize everlasting love, with a coiled snake in particular representing eternity. 

This Russian snake ring is a beautiful example. Made during the mid to late 20th century from 14 karat yellow gold, a looped snake works its way around the finger. The body has textured detailing throughout and ends with a square nosed face. 

A gorgeous snake ring, special, unique, and filled with symbolism, it's sure to be your new favorite heirloom.
