Symbols of feminine power and transformation, snakes have always inspired Lalaounis designs. This 18k gold snake ring is hand textured to suggest snakeskin, catching the light. A line of tiny diamonds runs down the spine, adding even more sparkle. Made by hand in Greece. Size 6.25.
"The surface has been chiseled and engraved by hand to give you the feeling of snakeskin and the way a snake moves but it’s still very elegant. I would wear this with the head pointing down to elongate the hand."
– Demetra Lalaounis
Contemporary designs meet ancient inspiration in the rich yellow gold of Lalaounis. Founded by fourth-generation jeweler Ilias Lalaounis in the 1960s, the company revived ancient Greek goldsmithing techniques, creating modern jewelry inspired by the country's rich archeological heritage. Following in the footsteps of their father, today the four Lalaounis sisters – Aikaterini, Demetra, Maria and Ioanna – are transforming five generations of tradition into wearable jewelry for modern women. Worn by style icons from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor yesterday to Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron today, the company’s designs are also exhibited in the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum in Athens.
The intricate hand-worked texture on this snake ring makes the gold glow. This classic Greek motif by an iconic Greek brand makes this ring as classic and collectible as it is fashionable today.
