For the past few years monogramed pieces have been all the rage; whether it’s the ubiquitous monogram necklaces, or the delicate initial disks that everyone is sporting with their layered necklace look, initialed pieces are hot. Since I tend to gravitate to the vintage/antique crowd, signet rings have really caught my eye. They’re on the monogram bandwagon,but they have a lot more personality and quirkiness than the dime a dozen initial necklaces. Not all my current favorites are vintage but all of them are unique and totally different than your average bauble.
At the top of my list is the Jade Trau for Forevermark signet rings. These feature Forevermark diamonds,and not initials, which provides a really fresh take on the trend, and makes it of the moment as opposed to stuck in the past.
In another modern, fresh spin is this 14k beauty made by Israeli husband and wife duo Dinar Jewelry. All of their designs bear, incredible, painstaking, luxurious, gold work. I love how the hebrew word Emunah is featured in relief on a grainy background as opposed to a traditional smooth background that’s classic of a signet ring.
Of course no Gem Therapist post is complete without something hearts, so I knew this art nouveau beaut had to be part of the lineup. It definitely fits the bill of a classic vintage signet ring.. I love that even though this is clearly an antique, the signet fronts are blank so you can monogram them with whatever you want. This would make a great push present or anniversary gift. It would also be a great gift for a mom with her kids initials on it(hint hint). It’s definitely on my wish list.
So now that I’ve shared with you my picks, which would you chose? Have signet rings won over your heart as much as they’ve won over mine? I sure hope so.
Here’s hoping you’re having a beautiful and therapeutic week.
