    About Signet Rings

    Signet rings are characterized by a unique design. They feature an engraved or raised symbol on the flat surface of the ring. Historically, signet rings rather served practical purposes than were accessory. Wearers used signet rings as a seal to authenticate documents and letters. The unique image left by the engraved design served as a signature, ensuring the authenticity of the sender. The design is typically created in reverse, so that when pressed into sealing wax or another medium, it leaves a clear and identifiable impression.
    Signet rings come in various designs, but they commonly feature family crests, initials, or symbols that hold personal importance. The face of the ring can be round, oval, square, or rectangular, providing a canvas for engravings. The latter is often deep and detailed, showcasing craftsmanship and attention to detail.
    Signet rings are often passed down through generations. The symbols engraved on these rings may represent family heritage or convey personal beliefs. In some cases, signet rings are used to denote social status or affiliation with a particular group or organization.
    While the practical use of signet rings as seals has diminished with technological advancements, they keep their symbolic and aesthetic value. Many people wear signet rings as a form of self-expression, or a great accessory matching their style.

    About Onyx Jewelry

    Onyx is renowned for its striking appearance and unique properties. Formed through the slow crystallization of quartz in the presence of water, onyx belongs to the chalcedony family. The gem is often found in areas with volcanic activity.
    Jewelry designers are drawn to onyx for its classic elegance and deep, lustrous hues. Onyx is often used to add sophistication to any design. The stone’s smooth texture allows to capture the essence of refinement and luxury. Onyx was a perfect gem for the Art Deco era’s sleek lines and geometric shapes. Its smooth texture and bold black-and-white contrast perfectly complemented the era’s streamlined aesthetic, particularly when paired with platinum. As a result, onyx became synonymous with the Art Deco movement, embodying its emphasis on modernity and geometric precision.
    Among contemporary jewelry makers, the gem finds frequent use in the pieces of all the big brands. Such collections as Perlée and Alhambra by Van Cleef & Arples are great examples of onyx’s application.
