Maybe I'll get a cheap one with a mirror-image of the initials so that I can seal letters with wax and imprint my signet into them. Probably not, though.
Yoga, do it. Great idea.
One of the partners at our firm wears two signet rings - his own and father's. Both are worn out of initials ("all that frustration goes in them, doesn't it ?"
) ) It's a nice tradition. Another Irish guy I know wears his initials flat ring on the middle finger of his right had. Don't know why though.
A sales guy at New & Lingwood also wears his father's ring. It's great.
