WHAT IS A FAMILY CREST SIGNET RING AND IS IT TOO MUCH OF A ROYALTY FASHION?
First of all, no, it’s not just a royalty symbol anymore. Back in the days of empires and royalties, a family seal was used to affix official documents. They poured melted wax on it to create an indentation of the family emblem. Each family had its own emblem to pour on a sigil ring. Just like those, you can have a custom family crest signet ring made specifically for you and your heritage.

FAMILY COAT OF ARMS RINGS
Heraldry arose in the 12th century after the coming of the armor and the crusades. Therefore there was a need to identify if a soldier was a friend or a foe. Distinctive insignias were painted on knights. Then came the medieval tournaments where each soldier carried their own family’s symbol to be recognized. In time, these symbols evolved to something more. They represented the wearer’s family history, property, social status, and profession.
This tradition hasn’t changed much in history. Although now we don’t have colorful tournaments, we are proud of our heritage. What’s more proud than carrying it with us? Yes, actions define us but legacy stays with us. A coat of arms jewelry will bridge you and your ancestors.
