This beautiful ring is made of solid 22ct gold and is fully hallmarked. The ring features the most stunning Pearl cluster and Rose cut diamond cluster set with a coiled snake on each shoulder. This is such a rare and unusual ring I have not seen another ring like it. The two snakes are protecting their clutch of eggs to the centre which are presented as the pearls it is charming and rare beauty.
The ring dates to 1913 and was made in Birmingham. It has a full hallmark for solid 22ct gold and is fine example of an antique English made ring. The snakes are finely detailed and are set to each side of a cluster setting. The snake eggs are 5 antique Seedpearls accented by 6 rose cut sparkling diamonds set in a bezel cluster setting.
The pearls show some wear due to the rings age, however they display beautifully, especially with the snake and egg theme superb! The ring is in lovely condition for its age and looks stunning when worn.I also believe their may have been a secret locket compartment to the back, however the window is not present. Its a fascinating and intriguing ring that oozes charm and sophistication of the pre war, early Art Deco period. The ring is size O 1/2. This truly is a Stunning and most unusual solid 22ct gold antique Pearl & Diamond snake ring that looks breathtaking when worn a rare beauty!
