An evolution of our Roman Signet ring. We are now in 15th century Italy. Faceted gems have replaced cabochons, and the Medici family, devout Catholics and symbols of luxury, are the perfect namesake to represent our newest signet style.
The simplified design, tall head and large faceted gem are reminiscent of papal rings one might discover on a visit to the Vatican museum. The Muzo emerald pairing is a reminder of the significant role emeralds played in the catholic history of Spain and Spanish efforts to discover emeralds in the new world.
The Medici Signet is a hand raised hollow form. Each ring is hammered by hand to shape a perfectly fit opening for the faceted gemstone, like this minty Muzo Emerald. The exterior is left smooth with a velvety surface, highlighting the warmth of high karat gold. A simple engraved line frames the stone. A smooth inner band closes the ring’s interior.
