C.1890. A spectacular antique French diamond and sapphire snake ring. Two chunky snakes are beautifully intertwined in the double coil. One snake has two rose cut diamond eyes, and is set with a cushion cut sapphire (1.09ct) on his head. The other snake has the ruby eyes with an old European cut diamond (0.74ct, G/SI2). The diamond dazzles bright. The sapphire shows some natural inclusions, and the color of it is phenomenal with a deep cornflower blue tone. Both stones have open-back setting. The ring bears French eagle hallmark, and is 18k yellow gold. It feels nice on hand with substantial weight (14.7g). The sapphire has some minor abrasions. Overall the ring is in very good condition.
