The signet ring is traditionally seen as a symbol of family heritage. For many centuries, the signet ring bore a family crest or coat of arms engraved in reverse so that it could be pressed into soft clay or wax and used as a seal on a document. While your ring isn't engraved in reverse, we love how traditionally, signet rings were used as symbols of sophistication with a bit of practicality.
Because signet rings were used as sealing in this way, it was official, authentic and could not be forged. It was seen as a form of identification. Because of this, signet rings are often referred to as ‘seal rings’. The name comes from the Latin ‘Signum’ which means ‘sign’.
Now you can wear your own signet ring with style and always remember a sentimental connection with something or someone with our hand-engraved customization.
