18k Gold Enamel Double Snake Ring- Fantastic Italian Enameling:
18K Gold Enamel Double Snake Ring
Classic Italian enameling!
This bold and wonderful ring has double snake heads with protruding tongues
at each end of a body that wraps around your finger.
The diamond-design scales are outlined in gold and filled in with colored enamel.
The center row of “scales” is orange
and the two rows to either side have a yellow, blue and green blend.
There is black enamel at the nostrils.
Even the gold balls used as eyes have enameling on them!
The heads measure 8mm at their widest
and the “body” is 4mm wide at the bottom of the band.
The overall width of the ring at the top is 24mm (from nose to nose)
and it rises 6mm above the finger.
There is no damage to the enamel which is remarkable considering its age. It probably dates from the 40’s or 50’s.
Very well made.
The ring is not hallmarked, but has been tested to be 18K gold.
The ring cannot/should not be sized.
Weight: 8.55 grams
