The History of a Signet Ring, Traditions Through Time
At its core, a signet ring is a thoughtful way to hold your loved ones close, a delicate reminder that holds incomparable sentiment - a token of love. However, rich with history, the concept and traditions behind wearing a signet ring have evolved over centuries of time to what it is today.
Traditionally, signet rings were used for various reasons, including showing status, representing loyalty, and even sealing letters. To seal letters, the ring would be emblazoned with a family crest and typically be worn on the pinkie finger of a person's non-dominant hand to stamp, or sign a document - with the design leaving a permanent mark in any soft wax or even clay.
Moving forward in time, it was during the Renaissance which marked the beginning of what signet rings are popular for today. In this era, the designs became more elaborate and intricate, used as symbols of love and affection, with couples exchanging rings as a sign of their commitment. A token, a constant, a symbol.
Embracing tradition, we have intricately crafted a divine range of Signet Rings here at The Moissanite Company - all entirely bespoke pieces that hold incomparable sentiment and will be cherished for generations to come.
