Custom Signet Rings – History
Although the signet ring has been around for more than 500 years, the growth of CAD jewelry have brought the style full circle. Supposedly, Men’s Signet Rings date back to at least the late 13th century. For the next few centuries, signet rings have traditionally been engraved with the family crest or coat of arms in reverse. This enabled the ring to be pressed into wax as a seal for letter writing and official documents. Sealing in this way was official, authentic and could not be forged – it was seen as a form of identification. And quite often the signet ring would be destroyed or buried with the owner once they had died. Eventually seals fell by the wayside and signet rings were mainly worn by the noble and religious classes.
This 2 tone Sun Signet Ring was oddly shaped signet ring. It features a silver ring with an engraved gold sun. Each piece was cast in it’s own metal and then soldered together. This is permanent. The vast majority of 2 tone rings you see are only plated. Although this is less expensive, it can wear off in as little as 6 months with rough wear.
