And now that you've found the best mens snake ring on the planet, let's jump right into the rich history of mens snake rings...
The History of the Mens Snake Ring
Snakes are an ancient symbol.
They've been around for millennia and have struck fear into the heart's of humans since the dawn of time.
Humans have tried to harness this power since the beginning, most obviously through snake charmers who manage to put these cunning creatures under hypnotic trances.
We've always been fascinated by the darkness of the world, which is where wearing these symbols in our jewelry began.
The Ancient Egyptians are one of the earliest civilizations that we are aware of to turn snakes into rings, using their immediate environment as inspiration for their jewelry. It had a meaning for them that we will dive into in the next section below...
The Romans, Ancient Greeks, Hindus, and Native Americans all have included snakes in their cultures. They wore them in jewelry to offer protection and wisdom to the person wearing it.
It's these symbols that gave these civilizations such strength to keep blazing a trail through history, during times that were incredibly dark and challenging. It helped them make sense of the oftentimes chaotic and brutal world that they were trying to survive in.
So every time you wear a snake ring, you're tapping into a rich source of power that lead to you being alive today.
Modern Day Snake Ring Wearers
Today you'll find snake rings being worn by all kinds of badass masculine figures.
Cowboys, bikers and rockstars are just a few of the archetypes that tap into this powerful energy through the rings they decorate their fingers with.
- Cowboys are directly dealing with snakes on a daily basis, using their wisdom to avoid meeting their demise every time they're confronted by deadly snakes
- Bikers speed through desert landscapes on the back of their motorcycles and often find themselves face-to-face with snakes when making pit stops
- Rockstars use snake rings to bring edge and attitude to their aesthetic, instilling confidence in them when performing on stage and conveying an air of mystery and charisma
You tap into the same energies when you wear a snake ring.
What Does a Snake Ring Mean?
Snake rings have a variety of different meanings, depending on what point in history we're talking about. If we're talking about the Native Americans, to them they represented "divinity, rebirth and spiritual power". [R]
A common meaning that has transcended cultures is that it's a symbol of rebirth. This is due to the snake's ability to shed it's old skin and generate a new one.
The rebirth meaning is also very present in the symbol of the ouroboros - a snake devouring it's own tail, creating a perfect circle loop.

But most importantly, let's go back to the Ancient Egyptians. Their particular climate and desert was inundated with these sly serpents.
Wearing a snake ring was used as a symbol to convey that they had control over the chaotic elements of life. That they could harness and control the snake's wild energy for their own benefit and create a safer environment for their people to survive in.
But What Does a Snake Ring Mean Today?
Every time you wear a snake ring you are conveying the same thing.
You convey that you have complete command and control over any situation. That you are not pushed around by life.
You convey that you are a leader, capable of taking the wildest elements of nature and using them as a force for good.
You uplift the people around you.
A snake ring is also used as a symbol of protection.
Imagine that you had your own personal pet snake that was trained to strike out at any dangerous characters that came your way. You would be completely safe, right?
Now obviously your snake ring isn't a literal snake, but you can tap into its power by wearing one and embody similar qualities when needed.
You look down at your finger and tap into the same sense of fearlessness and ferocity that a snake has. Any challenges in life that come your way will be met with swift action by you.

How to Style a Mens Snake Ring
Snake rings are made to grab attention. They don't just just sit in a standard shape like other rings do.
They slither and wrap around your fingers.
This is what's so cool and attractive about them. Snake rings make a statement. They seem almost alive.
They can really liven up your outfit and add a mystical, mysterious element.
But before we go wild, we just have a couple of important considerations when first sliding a snake ring onto our fingers...
Which Way Should a Snake Ring Face?
You want the head of your snake ring to face TOWARDS your fingernail. This is so the snake looks like it's coming towards someone else, in protection of you.
You don't want the snake to strike YOU, right?
Facing it the other way will have the opposite effect, so always have it facing AWAY from you.
Which Fingers Should You Wear Snake Rings On?
Snake rings look great on a variety of fingers, but one great one is as a thumb ring.
Think about it: snake rings are unique designs that differ from a normal ring. A normal ring is on a round band.
But snake rings coil around your finger. They're different from other rings.
Your thumb is also different from all of your other fingers. It does a lot of important tasks and sits off to the side of the other fingers.
This is what makes it great for wearing something a little more unusual. Try it on your thumb.
If a thumb ring isn't your thing, then try making it the star of the show on your middle finger. Having it in the center of your hand and then adding other rings on the fingers on either side of it maintains an aesthetically-pleasing sense of balance.
Also have you ever been flipped off by a snake? Didn't think so. If you ever have to flip someone the bird, then what better emphasis than to have a snake on that finger as well?
If you want something a little more low-key, then try getting a smaller/thinner snake ring and putting it on your pinky. This can add a cool extra detail that doesn't grab people's attention too much.
There really aren't any official rules here though, so have fun experimenting with this.
Wrap around snake rings are adjustable (you just gently bend them tighter or looser to fit whichever finger you like). So go wild and try it on different fingers until you find the one that best represents you.
It's always a good idea to keep the idea of maintaining balance on your hand in mind though.
Pair Them with Other Styles of Rings!
Why stop at one ring? Rings look great when multiple fingers have them, so pair them with other rings.
Snake rings are super versatile and can fit so many different aesthetics, so don't be afraid to try pairing them in unconventional ways.
We want you to express yourself to the fullest here and get to the core of expressing your unique personality to the world!
Snake Ring Outfits
Snakes love the desert, so naturally snake rings go hand-in-hand with the western cowboy aesthetic.
- Try wearing a silver or gold snake ring with a Levi's denim sherpa jacket, a denim long-sleeve button-up shirt tucked into Levi's jeans with a badass western belt, and complete the outfit with a pair of brown lace-up boots for that tough and rugged western cowboy-inspired look.
- A black or silver snake ring will work perfectly for a real rockstar look. Try making your outfit all-black. Black leather biker jacket, black skinny jeans, black leather Doc Marten's boots. Embrace the dark side.
- The boho hippie aesthetic also works perfectly with snake rings. Hippies are all about mother nature and the environment and snakes are sacred creatures in nature.
Go wild and wear a paisley or floral patterned print long-sleeve button-up shirt with some sexy Levi's 726 flared jeans and a Jim Morrison-inspired concho belt. Then slip into a pair of black leather chelsea boots and you'll be oozing character.
