Gimmel Ring

A type of finger ring that is composed of 2 (sometimes 3) separate hoops linked together, having the same shank split lengthwise so that the hoops can be fitted together unnoticeably as one hoop. The bezel is also split so that when joined it forms one ornament; it is sometimes decorated with clasped hands or a heart-shaped faceted diamonds (cut in pendeloque form) or sometimes three pearls or paste gems.
