Over the last few years many 70’s and 80’s styles have been making a comeback, such as chandelier earrings and animal brooches to name a few. The latest trend to re-emerge is the signet ring, once worn on the pinky finger by men, but now the trend is worn by both men and women.

The history of the signet ring goes back even further to the 17th and 18th century it bore the family crest and was a mark of distinction. Going back even further, as far back as 3500 BC, kings and religious leaders wore and used signet rings to mark and seal anything from documents, to doorways to tombs to prove authenticity. The seal could not be opened without damaging the identifying mark, making it difficult to tamper with.
