17th century gold and gem-set "fede" ring, circa 1610. This ring is of particular note as the hands are carved in emerald and for the unusually complex and elaborate way it is constructed, as seen on the reverse. For similar period rings incorporating circular clusters of gemstones on a relatively thin hoop, c.f The Museum of London. Cheapside Hoard, and Chadour. A.B., Rings: The Alice and Louis Koch Collection Leeds, 1994.
