More information : these rings have different names “rings of faith”, “Fede ring” or “mani in fede rings” (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 symbolises love. Sometimes a crown is placed over the heart, representing loyalty. It is therefore a jewel of feeling, a ring sealing a union full of promise.
