From ancient times to present day, men have worn rings to signify wealth, privilege and status. The signet ring was typically worn on the pinkie finger, with the ring used to imprint a wax seal on a document or letter. During the Victorian Era, it was common for a gentleman to maintain correspondence during all times of the day, even when not at home, and to have his seal on his person was a necessity. With his signet, the recipient was assured that the note was authentic, even if it was dashed off in haste. You might say that this was the Victorian version of texting!
Crafted in 14 karat yellow gold, this ring has etched white gold feathering on the shoulders, letting you mix and match with other pieces in your collection. The face hasn't been inscribed, so it's possible that this is a 'new old stock' piece, ready for you to personalize!
