Myia's Gold Facett Initial Cushion Signet Ring featured in 'Modern Signet Rings' pick of the best rings by Beanie, founder of In Detail.

"Once reserved solely for the landed gentry – the latest wave of signets celebrate unique design and personal style rather than power and family heritage.

The word signet comes from the Latin word “signum” meaning “sign” and these rings were first used by ancient religious leaders and the Pharaohs to mark documents when pressed onto hot wax or clay.

Long associated with personal status and power and traditionally worn on the pinkie finger, signets were a sign of authenticity too – when a noble man died, his ring would be destroyed so his “signature” could not be forged." -
