obsessing over: signet rings

I, like most southern girls, love a good monogram. As Reese Witherspoon has infamously said, "If it's not moving, monogram it." I support this sentiment whole-heartedly.

My latest obsession takes the monogram craze one step further--signet rings.

Signet rings actually date back to ancient Egypt--they're recognized as a symbol of power and tradition. Over time, the rings have shown different symbols--from a coat of arms to family crests. But my favorite are the modern take, featuring monograms of course.  {Though if I had a family crest or coat of arms, you better believe I would happily rock that!}

I love the idea of passing down a signet for generations. And since I never had a class ring, this is a pretty good alternative. I've been lusting after these babies and just had to share...

P.S.... I'd happily supply my monogram if anyone is feeling generous ;)
