A rare treat to have an antique Gimmel ring in such a large size! The perfect ring to give to the man who appreciates the sentiment of fine vintage and antique jewelry. The cuffs are frilled for the woman with a checkered pattern and a solid checker pattern on the man's. Is in great antique condition and closes firmly. Marked 925 along with a possible makers mark that is illegible to me. Sizes approx 10-10 1/8. Please be sure of size requirements before purchase. A brief history of the Fede Gimmel ring is found below...

- HEART IN HAND FEDE GIMMEL RING : THE FEDE RING HAS A LONG HISTORY DATING BACK TO ANTIQUITY. THE MAJOR TYPE OF THIS RING IS THE MOTIF OF TWO RIGHT HANDS TRADITIONALLY ONE FEMALE & THE OTHER MALE, CLASPED TOGETHER & HOLDING A HEART. KNOWN FROM THE ORIGINAL ITALIAN "MANI IN FEDE" (hands in faith or trust) IT WAS QUITE POPULAR DURING THE RENAISSANCE & GIVEN AS A TOKEN OF BETHROTHAL. THE PARTICULAR EXAMPLE IS A FORM OF THE GIMMEL RING INCORPORATING THE OLDER FEDE RING COMPONENTS. A GIMMEL RING IS COMPOSED OF TWO OR MORE (IN THIS CASE 3) BANDS JOINED TOGETHER WITH A TINY PIN THAT ACTS AS A FULCRUM OR PIVOT ENABLING THE BANDS TO SWIVEL, ALIGN & COME TOGETHER TO FORM ONE RING TO SYMBOLIZE THE UNION OF TWO PEOPLE. THE RINGS STYLIZED DEPICTION OF 2 CUFFED SLEEVES. WHEN THE HANDS ARE SLID OPEN, THE ICONIC HEART EMERGES FROM "WITHIN" THE HANDS TO DECLARE THE PLEDGE OF COMMITMENT & FIDELITY FROM ONE TO THE OTHER
