Petit Spade Signet Ring
The Petit Spade Signet Ring is our second offering in the Petit Signet series. These signet rings are smaller than our usual signet rings and features a recess in the shape of a diamond with a spade motif. The silver spade emerges from the darkened recess, giving a stark contrast.
In alchemy, the spade symbolizes the element of earth and the material world. It is associated with grounding, stability, and practicality. In some esoteric traditions, the spade is also linked to the concept of death and transformation, representing the burial of the old to make way for the new.
The word signet originated from the Latin word "signum" meaning "sign" or "mark". Signet rings were historically worn to symbolize authority and power, as well as used on sealing wax to leave the wearer's identifying mark. These rings were incredibly personal to the wearer, and would often be destroyed once the owner has passed as to not allow others to use the same.
Over time, our rings will accumulate scratches, scars, memories. Each of these perfect imperfections marks a special incident in your life's timeline, a timestamp of sorts. These scars may darken over time, adding to the raw beauty and uniqueness to your piece.
