Family crest rings Amsterdam full of tradition
Family crest rings, also called signet rings, are original rings with more than a decorative function. By pressing the seal of a crest ring, usually bearing the family crest, into liquid lacquer or wax that sealed a letter, it became clear from whom the letter came. Crest rings were often passed down from father to son.
Rings full of symbolism
In ancient times, signet rings were rings for the nobility and upper class. In those days, the signet ring or crest ring was a symbol of money and power. Usually, the family crest was chosen as the seal. But 4,000-year-old crest rings with the scarab as a motif have also been discovered in ancient Egypt.
Signet rings for men and women
Today, a family signet ring with initials, a family crest or a monogram engraving is making a big comeback. Still surrounded by an air of tradition, crest rings are eminently personal jewellery, which makes them popular again. As family jewellery, they still pass from father to son. Ot from father to daughter. Because the days when a family ring could only be worn by men are long behind us.

Crest ring as a personal gift
A crest ring is a valuable gift that visibly tells a personal story. That makes the crest unique.

If your family has a family crest, this gives the crest ring a very classic look. But it is of course also possible to choose initials and even an image. The image of your choice will be carefully, completely hand-engraved by master engravers.
