Serpenti jewelry first came on the worldwide scene when Prince Albert proposed to Queen Victoria, the engagement ring was a serpent with an emerald head. Queen Victoria’s engagement ring was a promise of a happy ever after, and fertility. Since then the serpent has been a favorite among jewelry designers, like Bulgari, Graff and Cartier.
The serpent is a symbol of good, evil, wisdom and eternity. It is also seen as an amulet for protection, good fortune and health.
There are other budget friendly pieces, and you can always have one custom made. I once bought myself an Elsa Peretti silver snake pinky ring, but I misplaced it during a move and have never been able to find it…..
