Since the clasping of hands was part of the medieval betrothal ceremony, it is not surprising to find rings that can be attributed to the'wedding ring' genre. Either way, it would be impossible to distinguish this ring as commemorative of love, betrothal or marriage. This is an excellent example with a very well modeled hands, the band is decorated and retains traces of the original gold gilding.
