Chevalier in French, signet in English ,sigillo in Italian: it was the ring for pressing the wax and sign letters, a kind of signature certified aristocracy, with the family crest expression of wealth, lands, castles and power. In the Middle Ages was in burnished silver especially in northern countries, elsewhere in gold, often with a hard stone embedded, from lapis lazuli to the more expensive sapphire and who was very powerful and very rich chose a diamond. Lost its function has remained a symbol of prestige, then adopted even by the middle class but without the heraldry crown. Now it is back in fashion, and fortunately with irony: instead of the castle a heart engraved with the word Love, who does not want to give up the crown can choose its big and white cartoon version or blacks zircons, the Bourbon lily appeal to nostalgic, the image of Our Lady of miraculous the devotees, the princess to the dreamers. In silver, gold or metal, small and discreet, big and fancy, there’s something for all tastes. M.d.B.
