ABOUT THIS RING

Snakes always get attention and this "striking' reptile is no exception. No scales here; he shimmers from the head--set with a sparkling European-cut diamond, with one round brilliant at his neck for good measure--to his tail with lively bright rich apple green demantoid garnets from the Ural Mountains of Russia. Keeping watch with tiny diamond eyes, he has coiled into a lithesome loop, ready to settle down on your finger. Total garnet weight, 1.25 carats. Circa 1890-1900, the round brilliant diamond on the neck is a later replacement. Hand fabricated in 14K gold, demantoids are set in platinum. Currently ring size 5. Condition note: demantoids show some wear commensurate with the age of the piece.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
