The joining of two right hands is symbolic of the union between two loved ones wishing to unite and spend years of happiness together. The motif is emblematic of the exchange of rings in promise of marriage or reflecting the vows between bride and bridegroom during a ceremony. The gold ring consists of two separate rounded hoops which interlock. Two hands with scrollwork decorated cuffs in opaque white and translucent blue enamel are soldered onto the hoops, when closed, these are clasped.  Hidden inside one hand is a heart of translucent red enamel. Engraved on the interior of the two hoops is the Latin inscription in capital lettering: “QVOD DEUS CONIVNXIT / HOMO NON SEPARET.” The enamel is missing in parts through age, but the ring is in good wearable condition.
