[ secret LOVE ]

FEDE GIMMEL rings have been used for centuries to symbolize the union of two people: in friendship, in marriage. They've been the wedding ring of royalty, and gifts between friends. 
I love the timelessness of this symbol - this one, to me, speaks of a secret love.
This is a rare gold triplet Fede Gimmel ring, circa late 1700s - early 1800s...The tiny clasped hands of the ring open, splitting the band in three, and exposing two hidden hearts. So beautiful! I wish they would still do this kind of ring....
