Snake Ring

An oath to power and courage. Snakes were believed to be immortal because they shed their skin. Featured in jewelry, the snake symbolised success and the course of life. A snake ring also symbolised power and courage. This ring is based on the model of a ring, found in Vesilahti in the Pirkanmaa region, dating back to the 7th century AD. The spiral has cross-stitch ornamentation and easily recognisable snake-shaped motifs at both ends.
