Victorian Sterling Articulated Fede Gimmel 2 Hands Betrothal Engagement Ring.
A fede ring, or gimmel ring, is a ring with two or three hoops or links that fit together to form one complete ring. The name gimmal comes from Latin gemellus, twin, via Old French. They were known as joint rings in Elizabethan England.
This traditional Fede ring consists of three bands. The two bands display clasped hand and a third symbol, a heart. When the two hands are joined they clasp the diamond heart.
This ring is a size __ (not sizable).
A very beautiful ring with historical significance. In the 16th and 17th centuries, such rings were fashionable in England, Germany, and other countries, and were often used as betrothal rings.
Today, these rings are used as friendship rings, bethrothal rings, or just about anything representing commitment and love.
