The snake is a ubiquitous motif, steeped in symbolism and lore. A snake sheds its skin and is reborn with a whole new skin, continuously transforming and renewing life– powerfully symbolizing eternity. This snake charms us with a stunning half carat, raspberry red ruby! The ring was handmade in 10k yellow gold for a man sometime in the 1930s. It is currently a size 10 3/4 and may be resized up or down within a couple sizes. The band's width measures from 5 mm at its thinnest to 13mm around the snake's head.
