Fine jewelry with your family crest imprinted on it. Make a family heirloom to be passed down through the ages. A family name used to mean more than just what others called you long, long ago. These names served as a symbol for the area you came from, the profession your clan was known for, and your ancestry. When fighting, the troops carried shields that were visibly imprinted with “coats of arms,” or family crests, which served as identifiers for both the family and the soldier, if they were from a noble family.

Need a present for a friend or family member? This would make the ideal mans wedding gift, for a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or Christmas. Take a look at a few of the emails from happy customers we have received. Knights and other noblemen were distinguished in battle by a "heraldic symbol," similar to the dog-tags worn by ancient troops. Frequently, the crest that appeared on the shield was also etched into jewelry, as the signet ring in the image above. They served as identification as well. In the past, wearing a signet ring bearing your family crest served as irrefutable identification. A master goldsmith will carve your family's coat of arms into the central part of this eye-catching Irish ring, cuff links or pendant. I can carve any family crest in the center, but the symbols that are displayed here are some of the popular heraldic insignia for many families. This style has a history of more than 800 years and was first worn as identification jewelry. Wearing your family name with pride will serve as an heirloom for future generations.
