Vintage Opening Love Heart Clasped Hand Fede Gimmel Silver Ring
This quality Vintage ring features three interlocking bands which display a pair of clasped hands, which open to reveal a love heart motif, modelled in Silver.
The fede motif (two clasped hands) represents the joining of hands of the couple at a marriage ceremony, a practice that dates back to ancient Rome and was known as ‘dextrarum iunctio’. A gimmel ring takes its names from the Latin ‘gemellus’, meaning ‘twin’, since such a ring is formed of two interlocking hoops. Traditionally, the betrothed couple would each receive one of these hoops, which would then be reunited at the wedding ceremony to confirm that each party gave their consent to proceed with the marriage.
