Description

Medieval clasp hands betrothal ring. A yellow gold fede ring, featuring a finely carved pair of clasping hands to centre with cuff details continuing through to a solid shank. Tested yellow gold, circa 14th-15th century.

Rings which feature clasping hands are seen throughout history from as early as the Roman period through to the 19th century. The clasping of hands signifies the joining of two parties and these rings were given to symbolize love or betrothal. The name is taken from the Italian 'le mani in fede' meaning 'hands in trust'.

This ring is in fine condition with an attractive patina.
