FAQs about Signet Rings

What is a signet ring?

Signet rings are jewelry that brings a lot of history. These rings are identified by their shape in which a flat surface, the ring’s face, is typically the largest part of the ring. This surface is often disc-shaped, square, rectangular or oval-shaped and can include engravings, designs or gemstones. 

In centuries past, such as during Ancient Egyptian or more recent Victorian times, signet rings were used to sign documents. The rings would feature a flat metal face or stone that was engraved with identifying information for the owner, such as a family crest. The ring would be placed onto hot wax or clay to sign documents. They were often worn as pinky rings. 

Today, signet rings are more of a fashion choice than one linked to practicality. They still bring the classic flat-faced profile, but without the need for actual stamping or engraving, these rings have been updated with new styles that bring them into modern fashion. Today, signet rings can feature diamonds or other details that make them a great choice for men and women alike. 

Do signet rings have historical significance?

When it comes to jewelry, signet rings are styles with strong historical ties. They were used for centuries to sign documents, seal envelopes and simply to demonstrate one’s social status.

What does wearing a signet ring mean?
