Georgian Fede Ring


The symbol of two clasped hands is an ancient, sentimental design that has historically been associated with fidelity and marriage. "Fede" rings (from the Italian, for "trust" or "fidelity") or "Gimmel" rings (meaning "twin") were often used as betrothal tokens in 16th and 17th century Europe, but they remained popular until well after the Renaissance. This wonderful late 18th century fede ring is fashioned in buttery 22k gold. Note the lovely detail of wrapped finger tips and thumb on the underside of the ring.
