Victorian Two-Tone Fede Ring
DATE: Victorian, c.1870
This antique fede ring features a particularly cool looking handclasp, and an attractive two-tone reeded band. It dates to c.1870, modelled in 9k gold and silver. The name fede comes from the Italian "mani in fede", which means "hands clasped in faith", but the design is ancient - going back at least as far as Roman times.
