Let's chat about Signet Rings

If there's one thing Argent and Asher hold near and dear, it's the opportunity to express oneself through jewellery.

Let's start with the basics. A signet ring is a ring that is engraved with a sign, initial, or symbol. They have been around for centuries, with a rich history dating back to ancient civilisations.

It was used in ancient times as a seal to mark letters or important documents.

Fast forward to today, signet rings have become more of a fashion statement rather than a functional piece.

They come in a variety of styles and can be worn by men and women alike.

So why are signet rings back in style?
One reason could be the rise of nostalgia in fashion. We've seen a revival of various styles from the 80s and 90s, and signet rings are no exception. Another reason could be the personal touch that signet rings bring.

The engraved design or initials on the ring add a unique touch and make it more meaningful to the wearer. Plus, with the rise of gender-neutral fashion, signet rings have become a trendy accessory for everyone to wear.

Celebrities and Signet Rings

From the likes of Harry Styles to Kendall Jenner, many celebrities have been spotted wearing signet rings. Styles has been seen sporting a chunky gold signet ring, while Jenner's is more delicate and adorned with diamonds. This just goes to show that signet rings can be styled in various ways to suit different personalities and fashion preferences.
