Black Onyx Serpent Ring
This stunning serpent ring is adorned with the option of two or six guardian serpents and a smooth sleek opal gemstone cabochon. We all have challenges and as we overcome them we arrive at the conclusion of our hopes and the beginning of our dreams. Such is the power of the Sacred Serpent as it circles back triumphantly from where it was into where it is going. Winding and coiled serpent motifs in jewelry have traditionally represented eternal love, wisdom and transformation.
Black onyx is said to be associated with the planet Saturn and along with peridot it is the birthstone for Leo.
This soulful stone is known in Ancient Greek to mean the “nail” or “claw”. According to Greek mythology, Cupid used one of his arrows to cut the fingernails of his mother Venus. When the nails fell from Mount Olympus into the Indus River they transformed into Onyx.
The perfect amulet for eternal love and protection.
