Fede Sterling Wedding Tie tack Vintage betrothal hand HandShake Commitment my Pleasure Thank You gift

Quantity available: 1
The fede ring traditionally has the motif of two right hands, one female and the other male, clasped together or holding a heart between them. The word ‘fede’ comes from the Italian ‘mani in fede’ meaning ‘hands in faith’. The fede ring dates back through antiquity and was popular during the Renaissance when it was given as a symbol of betrothal. It was popular throughout all the Middle Ages across all of Europe as a symbol of love and has continued to be worn in different forms to this day. Fede rings would very often be inscribed, usually in Latin or the local language. Their popularity ceased by the end of the 19th century. This a rare little tiny fede Tie tack or lapel pin..not the ring, but a treasure itself. For all of us who grew up with a hand shake is all you need then here you go.
