Long gone are the days of only men wearing Signet Rings
Posted on 13 December 2021
Signet Rings come with a lot of history. 3500 BC is the earliest known record of the Signet ring, where people of the Mesopotamian civilization used them as seals in their daily correspondence. Those days of family seals and crests!
To put into context for today, they were used as signatures. When they first appeared, only men wore them as women had not entered the workforce or held positions of power. As we all know, it would take centuries until women had voting rights and started holding prominent positions, so until that happened women did not have the authorization to sign off on documents. This was unfortunately also the case for people born outside of nobility (good riddance to those crazy days!)
What I love about a Signet ring is its highly individualized nature as seen in its history.
I've created two designs to start with, a pavé center with diamonds and one
with a bunny design and enamel.
Being born in the year of the rabbit and a nod to Alice in Wonderland, that was my first animal of choice! Each of my Signet Rings are engraved with my name written in Korean, on the front left side of the ring. You'll be able to see it faintly on the second image of each ring.
