Long before fraternities adopted it as a symbol of membership and unity, signet rings been worn as early as in Ancient Egypt as a personal seal.
While we might not need a signet ring to seal letters or sign documents anymore, its ornate, masculine style makes it a charming piece of jewellery to add a touch of androgyny to any outfit. Pair yours with a sleek pantsuit for a smart tomboyish look, or use it to juxtapose feminine pieces like the slip dress.
Whether you like yours plain, monogrammed or embellished, this distinct ring design is definitely making its way back into our jewellery boxes. Want to get your hands (and fingers) on a signet ring now? Click through the gallery above to check out some of the best pieces to buy now!
