The traditions of family crests and heraldry is an amazingly complex subject. A person could spend their lives studying coats-of-arms and still have more to learn. A large amount of information can be told in a very small area.
Traditionally, signet rings were used to ratify documents and prove that written correspondence was sealed and legitimate.
This hand engraved signet 14K gold ring features a lion, clouds, a motto in Latin, a field, and a star- all perfectly and excellently hand engraved. As is traditional, the entire image was cut backwards so a wax seal would present itself in the correct orientation. Celebrate your ancestors and legacy or make up one of your own,
