Signet rings are in the midst of a global revival thanks to the growing support of A-list celebrities, according to fashion search platform Lyst.
According to Lyst, searches have seen an increase of 38% on last year’s figures and the company cites Cara Delevingne, Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley and the Middletons as key influencers of the trend.
Signet rings are traditionally engraved with a family’s crest and passed down for generations, and they are now seeing a comeback with a place in the unisex market.
Domino’s Serrell-Cooke told Professional Jeweller: “Signets are also a popular choice with women who seem to be embracing a more male/unisex aesthetic.”
Lucy Hume, co-author of the Debrett’s and Bicester Village Guide to British Style, told the Telegraph: “Signet rings can carry meaning, reminding the wearer of their family, or, in the case of a club or society crest, creating a sense of kinship and belonging, much like a club tie or a pin badge.”
