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 9 1/2 with lenticular bezel supported by knot form ends cut with x’s or saltires. Exceptional preservation.  Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored and is gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
