While everyone has been cooing over pink diamonds, a less conspicuous jewellery trend has been quietly enjoying a resurgence of popularity, popping up on the fingers of everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Prince Charles. Dating back as far as 3500 BC, signet rings have survived the rise and fall of countless jewellery fads to emerge as a timeless classic. Traditionally worn by men, the ring bore a recessed design called an intaglio, often featuring a family crest or monogram which could be dipped into hot wax and used to leave a seal on important documents. Today signets are sported by both genders, adopting a more decorative function but still retaining much of the personal significance and symbolism of the original designs.
