Admiral Nelson Fede Ring

Regular price £0.00 £40.00 Sale

Our Admiral Nelson Fede Ring has been exclusively designed and it draws inspiration from the ring worn by Nelson at the time of his death; The exquisite ‘fede’ or betrothal ring, is made in the form of two clasped hands, the original ring is currently on display in the Nelson, Navy, Nation gallery at the Nation Maritime Museum.

Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson and Emma, Lady Hamilton took communion together before his departure to the Battle of Trafalgar and they probably exchanged the rings at this time. They were enacting the more informal kind of betrothal that preceded the ‘Act for the Better Preventing of Clandestine Marriages’ of 1753. These unofficial ceremonies might include the exchange of vows between friends.

This ring is exclusive to Royal Museums Greenwich and is part of our RMG Exclusives.

Care Tips:

Store your jewellery separately (and in its original packaging) as metals and stones can scratch when they come into contact with each other.

Avoid your jewellery coming into direct contact with perfume, household detergents or other chemical products.

We also recommend removing your jewellery before showering, bathing, exercising, swimming (in the sea or chlorinated water) and when on the beach, too.
