Victorian 18ct Gold Fede Ring

989R
Rare Find 160 Admirers
Written by Olly Gerrish

An 18ct gold rare Fede Gimmel ring from circa 1860-1880. It has three bands that open to reveal two hearts mounted on to an inner braided band. The bands are joined together with a tiny pin that acts as a fulcrum or pivot enabling the bands to swivel, align and come together to form one ring to symbolise the union of two people. The fede ring has a long history dating back to antiquity. The major hallmark of this type of ring is the motif of two hands traditionally one female and the other male, clasped together. Known from the original Italian “mani in fedeandrdquo” (hands in faith or trust), this style of ring was popular during the Renaissance and given as a token of betrothal. This ring cannot be sized.

Excellent experience from start to finish, I didn't have a clue what I was doing when looking at engagement rings but was very happy with my purchase. And it seemed to do the trick as she happily said yes :)
