“A Fede ring is a design of ring in which two hands meet and are clasped in friendship, love or betrothal. The design is ancient going back to Roman times if not before. It became prominent in the medieval period from the 12th century onwards and in more modern times. The name Fede is from the Italian phrase ‘mani in fede’ or hands clasped in faith.” – Source Wikipedia
