Graceful Victorian Era Triple Coiled Snake Ring in 14k Gold

A Victorian-era snake ring, modeled in 14k rosy-yellow gold, with dainty proportions and fine execution. This sweet-faced serpent encircles the finger three times; her lips are slightly parted, as if to suggest a smile or a whisper. Our snake's eye's are almond-shaped, with round, raised centers; her head bows to lay across the coils of her body, and her tail ends in a little wiggle. This ring is beautifully made. Its finish is lovely— buttery and very lightly time-worn. It would make a wonderful wedding band, or an excellent addition to an antique menagerie. This is marked with a 14, for purity.
