The artifacts gathered in Roman and Greek antiquity inspired the Victorians greatly. They duplicated a variety of hues and were enthralled by the subtle differences between them. When Queen Victoria picked the theme of a sinuous snake in gold, which was said to bring good luck, the ring's popularity skyrocketed.

Diamond snake rings are rarely purchased as wedding or engagement rings unless the groom-to-be is certain that his future wife would agree. Diamond snake rings aren't for everyone, and if the woman was expecting a more traditional form, a surprise proposal would backfire.
