The Time Seal Ring has earned the right to become one of our most popular pieces. Reformulating a classical design, it stands out among any other Steampunk-inspired ring due to its timeless design, always in style, and the fine craftsmanship necessary to achieve such an outstanding finish quality. Thus, the magnetism of the rose-coloured vintage watch movement is perfectly complemented by the satin-shine sterling silver ring shank, as a result of a labour-intensive artisan work.
Are you wondering why we have chosen the name Time Seal Ring for this piece? It is because we were inspired by the classical designs of signet rings (from Latin “signum” meaning sign). This tradition goes back to ancient Egypt, as the distinctive personal signature was not developed in antiquity and most documents needed a seal. Used to attest the authority of its bearer, signet rings have been seen as symbols of power and/or membership attributes. The use of a rose-coloured vintage movement brings in the ‘time’ factor in a classy way.
There is no need to clarify that the Time Seal Ring is not intended to seal anything, but to become your very own personal totem!
