Ask a question

Two eternally appealing snakes twine around this substantial 18-carat gold ring, which is hallmarked for Chester 1915.

The ruby is a vivid true red. It’s paired with a beautiful old European cut diamond.

The size is a generous R, or 8 3/4, so this would suit a larger finger, though it is still sizeable within reason.

The heads are plump and the faces appear to have a happy expression – the mouths are smiling rather than threatening.
