Signet rings have a long and rich history. Originally emblazoned with a family crest, they were frequently used as a functional item to seal a document with wax as means to ensure its authenticity. When titles and power were passed down the male line, signet rings were worn almost exclusively by men. We love that this one however, is hand engraved with the monogram "MRS" which makes it the perfect choice for a woman who loves vintage jewelry!
This ring is fabricated of rich 18 karat yellow gold circa 1920 in Birmingham, and still has the original English hallmarks inside the shank. Neither too big nor too small, it is the perfect size for everyday wear. It's comfortable and easy to wear either alone on your finger or stacked up with your other favorites. We think it's the type of piece you'll put on and never want to take off!
