Vintage sterling silver articulated three section fede gimmel ring.
"The fede gimmel ring is composed of two or more bands joined together with a tiny pin that acts as a fulcrum or pivot enabling the bands to swivel, align and come together to form one ring to symbolize the union of two people. The major hallmark of this type of ring is the motif of two right hands traditionally one female and the other male, clasped together and holding a heart. Known from the original Italian “mani in fedeandrdquo; (hands in faith or trust), it was quite popular during the Renaissance and given as a token of engagement.
Condition: Very good vintage condition with no issues to note. Personal preferences vary greatly for the amount of patina on vintage jewelry, therefore I tend to sell jewelry "as found" and leave polishing up to the new owner.
Size: Band size is 8 and weighs 4.3g
Hallmark: 925 & an unknown makers mark.
