The signet ring is making a serious comeback. The jewelry has been around for a minute (it pre-dates the Bible), but the sleek style still feels totally right now. Signets (from the Latin "seal") served a v important purpose back in the day, acting as a signature. Whether it was engraved with initials, monograms, a coat of arms, or a family seal, it was heated and then impressed in wax or clay. The sturdy symbol of social standing also represented land ownership. In modern times, it can seal your signature style with its minimalist-yet-swanky looks. Scroll on for some of our fave designs!
