Description
Snake rings have a tradition that is several thousand years old. Already the ancient Egyptians knew these symbolic pieces of jewellery as well as the Greeks, Romans and Celts. The snake was in all these different cultures carrier of special meanings: On the one hand dangerous by its poison and its cunning it was avoided, not least also in Christianity as the seductress of Adam and Eve. On the other hand, however, it was always admired for numerous other abilities attributed to it. In ancient times, the snake was considered a symbol of eternal life, the cleverest animal and the symbolic animal of the god of medicine, Asclepius. In addition, it was understood as a symbol of eternity and eternal life. The modern ring here, in 14-karat yellow gold, shows the body of a snake coiling. On the top of the animal are embedded sparkling diamonds while two red rubies form the eyes. The ring, probably created in the years around 1990, inspires with its presence and the elegance of its form. In England, rings of this type are called "Promise Rings" because they are often based on a promise. These rings were often gifts of everlasting friendship or worn as a sign of indissoluble love and attachment.
