During the Renaissance, the act of committing to marriage took place as a formal ceremony with vows, considered sacred and unbreakable, exchanged. A ring was given by the man to the woman to bind the pledge and worn until the marriage. That practice is believed to derive from the custom of providing a bride’s price or dowry. This example is size 11 1/4 with a lenticular bezel flanked by hearts. Exceptional preservation. Professionally refurbished with the silver surface restored and gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
