Ask a question

Here’s a fede ring that can be worn by both men and women. It’s difficult to find Victorian men’s rings today – and this is one that will suit a woman’s hand as well. 

It’s fully hallmarked for 15-carat gold, Birmingham 1899. 

The centre is set with an oval carnelian, which is set on the diagonal. A hand supports either side. 

Note the position of the hands, with one facing up and the other down. This balances the shape of the ring in a way that wouldn’t be possible if the hands were mirror images. It’s clever design. 


• Handmade in 15-carat yellow gold
• Set with a polished carnelian (cornelian)
• Size approximately 6 3/4 or N, but easily resized free of charge
• Weight is 6.9 grams
• In excellent antique condition
