The symbol of the snake is one of the oldest in human mythology. It appears over and over again in art and literature from the beginning of time. Ancient Egyptians used serpents in jewelry over three thousand years ago. It has been used as a symbol of guardianship, of vengeance, of renewal, and even everlasting love. When Prince Albert gave a double serpent ring to Queen Victoria it sparked a Victorian obsession in these gorgeous rings.
