The snake is considered divine, a symbol of immortality, a protective talisman. The crystal is a natural amalgam of malachite and lapis lazuli, long considered to have Metaphysical and Healing Properties.
This exceptional ring would not have looked out of place with the famous Sarah Bermhardt bracelet designed by Alphonse Mucha & made by Georges Fouquet.
