Get ready for a dose of macabre chic with this Platinum ring, hand-carved and cast in the depths of Los Angeles. Dive into the spooky elegance of my Platinum Signet Ring, featuring a hauntingly beautiful skull design. It's not just a ring; it's a rebellion against the ordinary. Crafted to defy the mundane, this unique piece orchestrates a symphony of darkness and luxury, urging you to break free from the shackles of convention. Time to let your inner mystique take the spotlight.

Behold, a solid Platinum signet ring boasting a petite yet captivating skull design. The crown of this ring measures 9.5x7.1mm. But wait, there's more – you can snatch it up in 14ct Yellow Gold, Rose Gold, White Gold, or Sterling Silver. Because why limit your choices when it comes to making a statement?

Platinum is a third heavier than 18k gold and is the most expensive metal used in making jewellery (other than the Rhodium used in plating). To help comprehend the rarity of Platinum, it was once suggested that if all the Platinum in the world was poured into an Olympic swimming pool it would not even cover your ankles! In the 18th century, the rarity of Platinum was brought to the attention of King Louis XV of France, who declared that it was the only metal fit for a king.

PSA: These fabulous rings are bespoke wonders, making their grand entrance from the USA. Get ready to embrace the virtue of patience; allow 6-8 weeks for them to pirouette onto your doorstep (though let's be honest, they usually sashay in fashionably within a fortnight – speedy rings, darling!). UK sizes G-T as standard.

Each of these beauties is handcrafted to order in the atelier of my US supplier. Back in the days of Elizabethan England, the Death's-Head Skull, minus the lower jawbone, was the holy grail for rebels, rakes, and nighttime adventurers. The term Death's-Head was practically a VIP pass for these rogues, and half-skull rings were their way of shouting it from the rooftops. Skulls and skeletons also take centre stage at Mexico's Day of the Dead – a worldwide celebration of all things macabre.

Here's a history nugget: Seals were the original authenticity stamp, ensuring legit transactions. Some businesses still swear by a company seal for that extra dose of authenticity. The signet ring, an ancient tradition holder, still stands tall today.

Layaway is on the table with flexible terms – just drop me a message!

Fun fact: In the Bronze Age, thousands of years ago, the twelve tribes of Israel flaunted their own seal. And the craftsman carving these seals? The VIP librarian of ancient times. Crowns of early signet rings were bedazzled with Peridot, Sardonyx, and Jasper – stunning, tough, and easy to carve.
