I have an Ouroboros ring (also spelled Uroboros and Oroboris) in my line for years. After many requests for a different version of the piece, I developed a new and more detailed Ring: Ouroboros Ring with Scales. Like my original version, this is the classic Ouroboros swallowing it’s tail. This time I have omitted the diamond on his head and added scales down his back and along his sides.
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclical, something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. It can also signify the concept of primordial unity related to persisting from the beginning with such force or qualities it cannot be destroyed. The Ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological imagery, used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of their work.
This piece may also be used as a pendant! Simply place the Ouroboros on your favorite chain or cord. Each ring is made as it is ordered, providing the recipient to request unusual sizes. To purchase yours, please visit my Ouroboros Ring with Scales Page.
