This oxidized sterling silver ring features an ancient serpent (snake), inspired by ancient Greek mythology. The serpent spirals around on the top surface on the ring. This is an open ring and is adjustable. The ring is set to an approximate size 7 but it adjusts to a size 4 through 9!
Oxidized silver is produced naturally when oxygen reacts with silver. Precious sterling silver reacts to oxygen very easily, and and will have a darker appearance. Oxidized sterling silver jewelry has a nice contrast and vintage feel as the finish lacks shine and sparkle.

Serpents figured prominently in archaic Greek myths. According to some sources, Ophion ("serpent", a.k.a. Ophioneus), ruled the world with Eurynome before the two of them were cast down by Cronus and Rhea. The oracles of the Ancient Greeks were said to have been the continuation of the tradition begun with the worship of the Egyptian cobra goddess, Wadjet. Other historical and mythological Greek figures with significant ties to the serpent included: the Minoan Snake Goddess, Typhon, Python, Amphisbaena, Medusa, Asclepius, Laocoön, Olympias, and Aeetes.
