Originally signet rings were emblazoned with a family crest and they would frequently be used to stamp or sign a document. The metal shapes would leave a permanent mark in any soft wax, or even clay, and this would be placed onto a variety of legal documents. In its day the stamp of a signet ring was seen as more authentic than a signature!
One of the most widely used ornaments in medieval Europe was the ring. It was attributed ever more symbolic and religious value, as well as ever greater importance as a talisman, good omen, and sign of office, and, as always, it served as a seal.
