RESERVED LISTING For Jeanie- Please Do Not Buy
So rare! This is a GENUINE Victorian era male and female hand ring crafted in beautiful rose gold with black enamel to detail the female and male hand. Each hand is delicately clasping a red stone (a nice way of saying that the 'stone' is glass).
The detail is simply spectacular, I love how the thumbs turn out a bit. (Look online and try to find one like this)
This is such a WONDERFUL piece!
The gesture of clasped hands was a symbol of pledging vows, and they were used as love and marriage rings in medieval and Renaissance Europe and then made a BIG comeback in the late Georgian and Victorian Era....and here is one from the Victorian times.
Would make a great promise or engagement ring...switching out the stone for a diamond would be very easy!
