Victorian 9ct Gold Conversion Ring with Snakes and Coral
A wonderful ring made from antique components. The head of the ring started life as something else and is made from solid 9ct gold. It depicts two snakes with lovely scaly skin and matching heads that are formed in such a way as to represent an infinity knot. At the centre of the snakes is a little square of gold with four faceted coral beads on little posts. The double headed snake is an antique piece that has been attached to a plain gold shank, also 9ct. It makes a very striking and wearable ring and the piece has enormous character.
This ring should be worn with care, particularly near water due to the presence of the coral.
