A custom signet ring is a unique way to make your mark. Not only is is a piece of jewelry to express your personality, it can be used as a wax seal for your mail or other important documents with your exclusive design. Historically, a personal seal was often used as a legally binding signature - if you ever see "L. S." on the signature line of a contract, it actually stands for "place of the seal" in Latin, and the origin of the wedding ring was a man giving his signet ring to his wife so that she had authority to sign contacts in his name to maintain the household. Today, many people use a wax seal or signet ring as a special finishing touch on wedding invitations.
Shapeways has terminated their Co-Creator program that previously allowed me to customize a ring for you and send it directly, however you can still get one through my Etsy Store.
I can add in initials to one of the other symbols you see here, or create a new symbol to your specifications. Please note that the ring and the impression that it makes are mirror images of each other - letters that look right in an impression come from a signet engraved backwards.
If you are designing your own symbol, for best results please draw within a 3/4" diameter circle, and keep all lines at least 0.020" wide. This is roughly equivalent to drawing with a 0.5 mm mechanical pencil. Check out this post for more information on Designing Your Own Signet Ring
Caution: remove signet rings from your hand before using to make an impression. The ring will get hot. Please be careful to avoid burns when using hot wax.
