The snake eating its own tail, or Ouroboros, has been an important religious and mythological symbol world wide. The snake eating tail symbolizes ideas of recreation of self, resurrection, unity, and infinity. 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.
The Snake Eating Its Tail Ring encircles your finger, grasping its tail in its mouth. Each ouroboros ring is skillfully handcrafted just for you in sterling silver, 14k gold, or 14k white gold. Each snake ring is carefully hand finished and individually inspected for the highest quality by the Badali Jewelry artists. The viper's eyes are completely carved out to the back of the ring.
The asp ring is available in US sizes 4 to 20, in whole and half sizes. Sizes 13.5 (13 1/2) and larger are an additional $15.00 in sterling silver, additional $45.00 in 14k gold. If you need a quarter size, use the special instructions area during check out to let us know.
