The face of the ring will have the markings taken from your Coat of Arms, especially the shield area and the crest. These markings will be engraved on the ring surrounded by the mantle and directly beneath these engravings the family name will be engraved on a special heraldic ribbon in reverse. In appearance they are very similar to the family crest rings and are available in Silver and Gold.
To create the seal which they were meant for, you simply get sealing wax which is available in various colours, but the most popular colour and the one that we are most familiar with is crimson red. Place a few drops of wax on the letter or the envelope wait a few seconds until the wax is beginning to set then press the ring into the wax, leave it for a few moments and then remove it, You should now have a perfect seal displaying your Coat of Arms which was widely used in former times. It is believed the old saying “let’s seal the deal” came from carrying out this deed.
