Rebus Signet Rings: Not By Words, But By Things

A signet ring is the perfect finishing touch to a sharply tailored suit or outfit, and there is no finer supplier than the London-based Rebus workshop…

The Latin phrase ‘non verbis sed rebus’, or ‘not by words but by things’, is otherwise known as the rebus principle – the practice of using symbols and pictures to represent the sounds of words. Fittingly, it is also the tagline of Rebus, one of the finest goldsmiths in Britain whose speciality is signet rings.

Today, signet rings bearing family crests or symbols are popular for their aesthetic appeal and as a way of showing pride in family heritage or status. With their bearing of classical elegance, they provide a perfect finishing touch to a sharply tailored suit or outfit.
