Ouroboros: Spy Glass Ring

$260.00

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol, first appearing in Ancient Egypt, of the serpent eating its own tail in an endless loop. This powerful symbol suggests the cyclicality of time and nature, as well as the idea of the soul and the continuity of life. In Jungian ‘inner alchemy’ it is a ‘dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the Shadow.’  Much like the Phoenix, it is said to be a symbol for destruction and rebirth.

 

Here, the Ouroboros is a life cast snake in sterling silver, paired with a magnifying lens, a symbol for ‘looking closer’ with intention and attention to detail.

The ring setting is made of two double headed snakes that cradle the glass, their tails crossing over one another and magnified beneath the center of the spyglass on the finger. 

This ring measures:

-33mm in diameter 

-sits 11mm off the finger 

-hand cast sterling silver

-magnifying glass is 30mm in diameter

Please note glass is hand cast and may have slight waves or imperfections in it. Spyglass necklace.
