SNAKE RING

SNAKE RING


You may have noticed a resurgence in snake themed jewelry as of late; snakes have been featured everywhere for the past few years and there is no sign of this popular motif slowing down any time soon.

Antique jewelry featuring snakes is highly collectable, and even more romantic than you may realize. Serpents symbolize wisdom and eternal love. Snakes will long reign supreme with their elegant scales of eternal acceptance since they have been a part of ancient jewelry creations and many other areas of original design.

Possibly one of the earliest serpent engagement rings was Queen Victoria's when she wed her first cousin, Prince Albert, in 1840. Her serpent engagement ring was accented with an emerald set head (also Queen Victoria's birthstone). At the time birthstones were a common gemstone of choice for engagement rings.

Victorian jewelry has an ageless beauty and a nostalgic value as jewelry was fashioned with hidden meanings to tell a story or send messages through the material composition, color, shape, and featured gemstone.

I am inspired by the Victorians, you can see their influence throughout my collections.  I searched for a snake ring for a long time before I purchased one for my 40th birthday.  This ring ultimately served as the inspiration to create one for my collection, MEMORIALIZE, and for you.  

My antique ring is thinner and smaller, made of inconsistent wrapped wire with an uneven, aged patina.  However, the homage to the original is everything you want in your future heirloom -- hefty, solid, and bold.  This snake will slither onto your finger and complement your most favorite stacking bands.

You may customize your snake in a variety of finishes and gemstones. The snake ring can be found in the MEMORIALIZE COLLECTION.

Please contact me to customize your snake today.

My mother didn't pass down any jewelry to me ​and I​ ​never ​saw the ring ​she received when ​my father proposed. I guess it’s not important​, since​ they divorced when I was a toddler​. However, since repurposing inherited ​pieces ​is one of my favorite design challenges, I am occasionally reminded of what little (in terms of jewelry) I have to remember those that have passed on.
