Edwardian Garnet 9ct Gold Snake Ring
A chunky and strong ring from the late Edwardian period, dated Chester 1917. The ring is a lovely coiled snake with a deep red garnet set into his head. It has a lovely wide band and the 9ct gold has a gentle rose tint to it. The ring has been well loved as the back coils have merged into each other making the ring flatter here and consequently very comfortable to wear.
