The history of the signet ring dates back to the millennium. At the time, the significance of the signet ring among the Greeks and the Romans in particular was that of a symbol of power. It showed the authority of the person who wore it. The signet ring became trendy again at the end of the 17th century, after having been forgotten for a while. That is to say at the beginning of this same century. This is how the new princes began by having their personal stamps and the most affluent, the coat of arms of their family.
