Antique Georgian 18k Fede Ring
Details: This 18k "fede" ring is both incredible and collectable. The design and function of the ring are still completely intact - with the two hands (which are clasped together when the ring is closed and being worn) parting, revealing the interior third band of the ring featuring two hearts - side by side.
The fede design is one in which two hands meet and are clasped in friendship, love or betrothal. The design is ancient going back to Roman times, if not before. The name fede is from the Italian phrase "mani in fede," or, "hands clasped in faith."
Origin: Purchased in England, c. 1790-1820.
Measurement: The ring is a size 7.5 and cannot be sized.
