The snake has been a valued and important image since ancient times. It was an established mythological symbol since human history has been recorded. With that, comes great power and interpretations. To some cultures it represented rebirth and transformation. The shedding of snake skin translated to new beginnings and growth. In other civilizations, snakes were allegedly used to safeguard sacred spaces. Their loyalty, quickness, and demeanor made them skillful protectors. We’re not sure if these any of factors were considered when Prince Albert gifted Queen Victoria with her serpent themed engagement ring, but they seem appropriate for a union. But with this one action, the snake symbol gained another layer of symbolism- this one of eternal love. 

This snake ring was hand crafted during the Victorian Era. It is likely that once word of the Queen’s ring spread, this ring was commissioned by someone belonging to the upper class. A cabochon sapphire showing a beautiful blue is set on top of the snake’s head while two rose cut diamonds create the snake’s eyes. We’re especially thrilled with the construction of the ring, since the snake twirls around your finger creating a knot with its body. 

 Whether you need a daily connection to nature, inspiration for transformation, a talisman of safety, or a symbol of love (or all three!), this Victorian ring can cater to it.
