Clasped hands ring


This kind of ring with an image of clasped hands is called dextrarum iunctio, the "joined rights". Original

finds drived from the age of the Roman Empire, but also of the early and late Middle Ages. The meaning

is the same, the ring symbolizes loyalty and closeness.


In the roman era, the clasp of the right hands was used to conclude a marriage, in the same way like

the modern "yes" in front of the altar .

In the Middle Ages, the term "Handtruwe" emerges, translated hand-faith . It means an object, which

symbolizes the love and the unity of two humans, maybe a ring or a brooch. The Handtruwe can be used

for engagements, between husband and wife or even between parents and children.
