Secret Snake Ring with Marquise Rainbow Moonstone


one of a kind


What lies beneath.

A bezel set marquise rainbow moonstone with a secret snake for a band. I carved the bezel specifically for this stone out of jeweler's wax, cast it in silver, soldered on the snake shank that I also carved out of jeweler's wax, and then set the stone. I then oxidized the ring to bring out all of the details, and brushed it to a glowing satin finish.


Marquise cabochon rainbow moonstone with sky blue and yellow iridescence in a stone with icy white inclusions. It is 1 1/4 x 1/2", or 32 x 13mm. The snake's body is 3/16" or 4mm wide at its widest.


Ring size 7 1/4

Made by hand in Brooklyn and ships gift boxed. The paper lining in the gift box may be different than what is pictured, but it will be just as pretty.

There are several ways to go about finding your ring size:

- You can go to a jeweler, almost any jewelry shop will measure your finger for you.

- Bring a ring that fits to a jeweler to be measured.

- Printable ring size guides are a great DIY solution.

- Order a ring sizer kit. They are relatively inexpensive, and last forever! There are ones for measuring your finger, and ones that have a tool for measuring rings, and ones that come with both. 

Oxidized Silver

For my oxidized sterling silver pieces, I recommend using a silver polishing cloth to keep your jewelry bright.

I do NOT recommend a jewelry cleaning salvation like Tarn-x or the aluminum foil and baking soda method because it will remove all go the oxidization from your piece.


For my gold pieces, a silver polishing cloth will work as well.
