After a lifetime working with gemstones and jewellery five years ago saw Matthew Ely began his own jewellery legacy on Ocean Street, Woollahra. A month ago he started a new and exciting chapter in that legacy.
Throughout history, signet rings were traditionally decorated with an individual’s family crest and passed down from generation to generation. Often associated with the historical gentleman’s ring, they are a symbol of family heritage and pride. A signet ring was once passed down through marriage and was one of the few pieces that men would wear, however, more recently, the classic signet ring has become a unisex piece that is increasingly versatile in its style.
