Mythical Greek History For Snake Jewellery

The mythical Greek creature Ouroboros has been an inspiration for some of the most unique snake rings and snake necklaces. This creature is often depicted as a snake eating its own tail, forming an eternal loop that has long been a symbol of life and eternity. This style of jewellery displays a powerful symbol of life and time, making it the perfect piece of jewellery to mark any special occasion.

For those who want something a little different, there are also double serpent rings. These rings feature two intertwining snakes, often with gemstones set along the snakes’ bodies for a more dramatic look.

History of Snake Jewellery

The symbolic meaning of snake rings dates back to ancient times, when the serpent was often used to represent eternity, infinity, and transformation. The snake has also been linked with rebirth, due to its ability to shed its skin as it grows. These symbols have been adopted by cultures around the world and are still celebrated in popular culture today.

The use of snake jewellery dates back to the Ancient Egyptians, where snakes were believed to possess magical healing powers. Snake rings were often crafted from gold and adorned with precious stones, such as lapis lazuli and amethyst. Ancient Greeks also wore snake rings to honour the gods or to ward off evil. In Roman culture, snake rings were often used as talismans to bring good luck.

In the Middle Ages, snake rings were seen as symbols of protection, fidelity, and fertility. They were very popular among the wealthy, who wore them as a symbol of their power and wealth. During this time, snake rings were often crafted from silver and adorned with semi-precious gems like turquoise and jade.

During the Renaissance period, snake rings were fashionable among members of the nobility, who often adorned their rings with precious stones like diamonds and rubies. In the 19th century, snake rings were often crafted from gold and were often set with colored gems such as sapphires and emeralds.

Today, snake jewellery is still popular and continues to be worn for its symbolic and protective meaning. Snake rings have been embraced by modern culture and can be found in a variety of metals, from sterling silver to platinum. They can also be adorned with a variety of gemstones, from diamonds to labradorite.
