9ct Gold and Ruby Serpent Ring
An antique 9ct rose gold coiled serpent ring with ruby eyes.
Serpent jewellery gained popularity due to the influence of Queen Victoria. After receiving a snake-shaped engagement ring from Prince Albert, Queen Victoria sparked a trend for serpent-inspired jewellery. The Queen’s love for serpent motifs influenced fashion and jewellery trends throughout the Victorian era.
Serpents were seen as symbols of eternal love and wisdom in 19th Century England. The serpents’ ability to shed its skin and be reborn represented immortality and renewal. This symbolism resonated with the Romantic and Victorian ideals of eternal love and devotion. In other cultures, they were seen as a way of warding off evil spirits and bring good fortune.
