A signet ring is a timeless classic piece of jewelry and has played an important part throughout history. Originating from the Latin word ‘signum’ which means ‘sign’, signet rings often had a seal engraving on the head with a personal family crest and used by the owner exclusively as a seal. 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 however, signet rings are used as dress rings, engagement rings for men, family crest recognition and they are frequently passed down within a family line from member to member.
Signet rings are 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.
