The snake eating its own tail, or Ouroboros, has symbolized many things over the ages, but generally represents ideas of recreation of self, unity, and infinity. The ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism world wide. The Ouroboros appeared in Ancient Norse mythology as Jörmungandr, one of the children of Loki, who grew so large that it could encircle the world and grasp its tail in its teeth.
Each Asp Ring is skillfully handcrafted one at a time by the Badali Jewelry artist in your choice of precious metals. Choose from sterling silver, 14k gold, or 14k white gold. The asp or viper ring has three-dimensional eyes. The Ouroboros ring is available in US sizes 5 to 18, in whole and half sizes. Sizes 13.5 and larger are an additional $15.00 in sterling silver, additional $45.00 in 14k gold.
The snake ring measures approximately 6.2 mm (1/4") wide at the snake's head and 3.5 mm (just over 1/8") wide at the band. The ring weighs approximately 3.6 grams in sterling silver, approximately 4.5 grams in 14k gold, weight will vary with size. The head is partially carved out to reduce weight and increase comfort.
