Part of a medieval silver-gilt 'fede' ring dating to the 15th century. The bezel consists of two clasped hands with a crown above. There is space between the central and right ornaments of the crown but not between the central and left ornaments. The clasped hands are denoted by incised lines and there is not much detail. There are collars on each side just beyond the wrist. The breaks are just beyond the collars on both sides however these are quite uneven so it seems unlikely that they were intentionally cut. Fede rings come from the Italian for faith (mani in fede) and came t…
