When Prince Albert asked for Queen Victoria’s hand in marriage in 1820, he did so with a ring shaped like a snake, set with emeralds. Following this, snake jewelry became all the rage, symbolizing eternal love and wisdom.

In Greek mythology, snake rings were worn in honor of the Greek healing god Asclepius, who Zeus struck down as he feared Asclepius would transform all of mankind into immortals. In Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, snakes were regarded for their skin-shedding as a symbol for regeneration and rebirth. Today, the snake is still the symbol of medicine
