This is for making impressions on sealing wax in the form of the Scales of Justice, traditionally a symbol of the legal profession. It's also the Zodiac sign for Libra (September 23 - October 22). I'm particularly proud of the details in this one. This takes advantage of the depth variation possible within the seal, so the pans on the scale literally pop out at you.
Premium sealing wax can be ordered through our main website

Caution: remove signet rings from your hand before using to make an impression. The ring will get very hot. Please use caution to avoid burns when using fire or hot wax.
In some rare instances, Shapeways stainless steel rings have caused a reaction called "tea staining." This is a (not permanent) brown mark on the skin caused by a chemical reaction with the bronze binder. Research shows that it depends on skin chemistry - some people always get it, most people never do. Some solutions for people concerned with this are coating the skin contact area with clear nail polish, gold plating, or getting the ring made in silver.
This symbol is also available as a seal.
