19th Century Articulated Snake Ring

19th century articulated gold snake ring. Masterfully crafted with seven hinged sections that twist and curve around the finger. The ring is a rare find and remains in exceptional condition. A remarkably similar piece, seemingly by the same craftsman, is featured in the book Serpentina and displayed at the German jewelry museum in Pforheim. Greman in origin. Circa 1850. 

Size 6, cannot be resized. 

Should be worn with care.
