In Poland, Coat-of-Arms were awarded to people who distinguished themselves in services for the King or the State. During the Middle Ages, Coat-of-Arms signets were worn by monarchs and nobles and used as an official seal embossed in wax and attached to documents with string. In Poland today, wearing a signet is popular and socially accepted, proving your noble status—it is a ring that symbolizes the brilliance and majesty of the age of chivalry. For those who bravely fought on the battlefield during wartime services, the top color of the stone is Red. A Blue colored top stone was used for distinguished peacetime services. We would like to offer a 14K Gold Coat-of-Arms signet in traditional, distinctive design.
What makes our signets special?
It is the engraving in the stone not offered by other sources. The extraordinary detail exhibited in our signets is the result of hand engraving and hundreds of years of traditions passed from one generation of artists to another. The hand shaped and polished stone is made of natural onyx from a quarry in Germany. We offer the finest quality presentation of your Coat-of-Arms. Your ring is designed to be a cherished heirloom for a lifetime of undiminished pride.
In the example picture above, the displayed signet shows the ZAREMBA family Coat-of-Arms with a square shape for a man's ring and blue top stone with a red bottom stone representing peacetime services. The ring will display the Coat-of-Arms' mirror image. During the medieval times, Royalty had Coat-of-Arms rings made specifically for sealing letters with wax. This served as a seal of authenticity.
