I work for a London Jewellery manufacturer and we have always made
’Russian Wedding Rings’. I have been asked why ‘Russian’? I have
tried to research the term and understand that in Elizabethan times a
ring was made which was known as a Gimmal ring, being 3 or 5 bands
interlocked to-gether. I know that the 3 bands represent a man, a
woman and god or as the holy trinity, but I can not find where the
Russian part comes from. Can you shed any light on this subject.
