Second-hand signet rings: highly symbolic jewelry

The first signet rings appeared in ancient Egypt during the time of the pharaohs. These are rings with a wide plate that feature engravings or cameos, namely raised emblems. Historians have found a large number of them in Egyptian tombs. Archaeological research shows us that they were used to signify his authority and belonging to a social class. Subsequently, the Greeks and Romans of the XNUMXth century wore them as an assertion of power.

The term "chevalière" appeared in the Middle Ages with the valiant knights of the crusades. At that time, men and even some women used it to apply their seal. It is also called "sign ring" in reference to the Latin word "sigillum" meaning "seal". With the progress of literacy, its usefulness diminished over time and this piece of jewelry was forgotten at the beginning of the XNUMXth century. However, it provoked a renewed interest among figures of nobility at the end of this same century to become the fashion accessory it is today. Initially made of yellow gold, this family jewel has been enriched by the various currents it has crossed. We can currently acquire second-hand signet rings with or without precious stones in yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, platinum and other metals.

If you're wondering which finger you should wear a signet ring on, French tradition dictates that it be on the left ring finger of eldest sons and on the right ring finger of cadets, youngest children, and women. However, there is no rule in the matter since it is nowadays purely aesthetic. It is an ideal gift for a young man or a young woman as well as to declare his love.
