This is a vintage 1970 late mid century gold over sterling silver coiled snake ring. It is marked sterling, tested, and guaranteed to be solid sterling silver. It has some age wear, mostly contained to the inside of the band. Age wear is not eye catchy or obvious when the ring is worn on the finger. Ring size is 5. It has a thick strong solid setting with a broad deeply textured snake that wraps into a coiled non textured circular body. Very chunky, showy mid century modernist design. The body tapers thin up toward the tail. The top is 3/4″ wide North to South. East to West is 13/16″ long shoulder to shoulder. A lovely ring for your vintage mid centrury modernist jewelry collection!
