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 an important symbol in religions and mythology 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 Cobra Eating Its Tail Ring is skillfully handcrafted one at a time by the Badali Jewelry artists in your choice of sterling silver, 14k gold, or 14k white gold. The Cobra Ouroboros ring is available in US sizes 5 to 20, in whole and half sizes. Sizes 13 1/2 (13.5) and larger are an additional $15.00 US in sterling silver, additional $45.00 US in 14k gold.
The cobra ring measures approximately 14.2 mm (9/16") wide across the cobra's hood, 4.5 mm (3/16") wide at the back of the band, and the head rises approximately 9.5 mm (3/8") high off your finger. The ouroboros ring weighs approximately 7.7 grams in sterling silver / 9.6 grams in 14k gold. The ring's weight will vary with size. The inside of the cobra's head has been partially carved out to reduce the weight and insure successful casting.
