An early Georgian “Fede” ring, or faith ring, composed of two hands clasped in friendship, love or betrothal. On one internal edge it says ‘THATS’ and on the other internal edge it says ‘LEOPOLD’, so it may have been worn in memory of someone’s husband. The name ‘fede’ is from the Italian phrase ‘mani in fede’ or hands ‘clasped in faith’. Fede rings such as these have been around since Roman times.
