The signet ring is a timeless classic piece of jewelry and has played an important part throughout history. Originating from Latin ‘signum’ which means ‘sign’, they were often engraved signet rings very deep (seal engraved) with a personal family crest and used by many as a seal. This type of seal engraving allowed the head of the ring to be pressed into hot wax which would provide an inprint on letters or also, legal documents. Signet ring seals were historically known to be the most authentic way of signing a document, (even more so than a fingerprint!) with the rings being disposed of after the person passed. Today, signet rings are frequently passed down within a family line from member to member.
Signet rings are often engraved with initials monogrammed together to provide a signet ring personalised to the owner and when asked about which finger signet ring are worn on – this is often worn on the pinky finger of the non-dominant hand however, they can be worn on any finger by men and women of all ages.
