Abstract: Recently Britten has proven an analog of Goldie's theorem for the Jordan ring $ S$ of symmetric elements in a ring with involution of characteristic not 2. In this paper we first extend Britten's theorem to the situation where $ R$ is an arbitrary ring and the Jordan ring is only an ample subring of the symmetric elements. We apply this result to show that if $ S$ has ACC on quadratic ideals, then the (Jordan) nil radical of $ S$ is nilpotent.
