    One of the most historical styles of men’s rings is the Signet ring. Sleek, bold, and personalized, these rings date back as far as 3500 BC, when pharaohs and religious leaders used the flat-face of the signet ring to seal documents and signify the prestige of the wearer’s family heritage. Nowadays the signet ring has been coined “the gentleman’s ring”, and with good reason. Signet rings speak to the loyalty and pride in one’s personal history, showcasing that which is truly important to the wearer.
