Fantastic fede gimmel ring, in 18K gold, probably 19th century. Fede rings feature clasped hands and were historically betrothal rings. This is also a gimmel ring, with three bands fitting together to form one complete ring: the two clasping hands hide a double heart. Fede comes from the Italian word meaning “trust”; gimmel comes from the Latin “gemellus”, meaning twins. Marked “18g” with maker’s mark “B&S”. Very good condition. Ring size 5.
