This striking men’s signet ring features a hand-carved fleur-de-lis on the top, surrounded by a ring of bright cut set blue sapphires. There are additional hand-carved details on the sides of the ring, and we can recreate it for you as it is, or we can work with you to customize it so that it better suits your tastes.
The beautiful designs on this ring were all hand carved by our expert artisans. The top of the piece features a fleur-de-lis with stunningly intricate detailing. With its many twists and turns, it fills the nearly square space perfectly, and the contrast with the clean, straight lines of the border help to emphasize the movement of the design.
The sides of the ring also feature wonderful hand-carved details, with one depicting a griffin and the other a winged lion holding a sword. The inclusion of these mythological creatures fits with the medieval theme of the piece, and it serves as a reminder of the origin of these types of rings.
Signet rings have a long and storied history, and while they are certainly stylish now, they served a greater purpose in the past. Noblemen in particular used these types of rings to put their mark on a letter or document in place of their signature, and that’s why the carving on top must be so distinctive and detailed.
The fleur-de-lis at the top is ringed with bright cut set round blue sapphires, and their rich color contrasts perfectly with the silver of the 18k white gold band. These gems and the type of setting used to hold them add a bit of classical flair to the piece, which also ties in nicely with the mythical themes.
