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 deeply (seal engraved) with a personal family crest and used by many as a seal. The ring was pressed into hot wax which was 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, they are frequently passed down within a family line from member to member.
Signet ring engraving is often the wearers initials monogrammed together to provide a signet ring personalised to the owner 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.
