They’re also lifetime pieces, which can be passed down through generations from father to son. Quite simply, a personalised, bespoke signet ring is a must for every single modern man. 

Below, the Anthony Paul Jewellery team celebrates the inimitable, lasting signet ring, and looks at why every gentleman should consider buying one. Read on to learn more, and if you are considering buying a handmade signet ring - then please visit our website today. We offer an extensive signet ring collection, with an array of bespoke design options available - all to suit and reflect your personal style and preferences. 

The History of Signet Rings

Signet rings were originally used for affixing seals to official documents. This process involved pouring melted wax on, and pressing the knuckle into it to create an indentation of the family crest or another emblem. The signet ring that we know today was made popular by Egyptian pharaohs, who had rings that bore hieroglyphics. Ever since these ancient days, the signet ring has continually endured and lasted, in credit to its unique design. 

Here in Great Britain, the signet ring was made notable by King Edward II, who ruled that all official documents should be signed and stamped with his signet ring. Whilst this might sound like an ancient tradition to us nowadays, the signet ring still has an important role to play in modern society. It is a mark of pride, tradition and family, and it’s a piece of jewellery that every gentleman should have. 

Reasons to Buy a Signet Ring

There are so many reasons why you should purchase a signet ring for yourself, or as a lifelong gift for a loved one. Ultimately, a signet ring is about pride, and it’s about having something that can represent your family and be handed down through generations. You might have a family crest that you would like to recognise and remember; the signet ring is the perfect opportunity to do this. 

Whether you buy a silver signet ring, or a gold signet ring, this is a great chance to immortalise your family’s history and lineage. Signet rings demonstrate that you are proud of your family and identity, and they are a piece to be cherished for decades to come. Likewise, a signet ring can be used as a ‘friendship ring’, as a mark of respect between you and your close friend and family.
