The signet ring is a classic item of jewellery and has played an important part throughout history. Originating from the Latin word ‘signum’ meaning ‘sign’, signet rings were often engraved very deep (seal engraved signet rings) with a personal family crest and used by many as a seal. This involved pressing the head of the ring into hot wax to provide an inprint on letters or also, legal documents. Signet ring seals were known to be the most authentic way of signing a document, (even more so than a fingerprint!) with signet rings being disposed of after the person passed. Today, they are frequently passed down within a family line from member to member.
Signet rings today are often engraved with the owners initials monogrammed together as a signet ring with initials and 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.
