More about : These rings have different names “rings of faith”, “ring Fede” or “rings mani in fede” (meaning hands in confidence). The ring of faith spread throughout Europe during the Middle Ages and remained popular for the next six centuries. Here, the hands represent friendship and the heart symbolizes love. Sometimes a crown surmounts the heart, representing loyalty. It is therefore a jewel of feeling, a ring sealing a union full of promise.
