“Preeminent” – It comes from the Latin Prae (before) Eminere (to stand out) in the 15th
Century and requires an unquestionable Pedigree not exaggerated Hyperbole

alive my fully customised family crest into a Golden 18k ring.”

There are many ways to look at the value of a family Ring say in 150 years – the value of the precious metal or the
future value of a dollar today. However, the most important value may be the exact moment you present the ring to a loved one
or the moment a future great-grandson or granddaughter comes across your Family Crest Ring and reads what you’ve
inscribed on the back. Suddenly, the arc of time – historical and future – come together in an instant. The time
of medieval heraldry rushes through 2015 and catapults forward 150 years – in that moment.
There is also the value of wearing it. People are going to look, make it worth their while. It may be the topic
that breaks the ice so to speak – Is that a Coat of Arms Ring? And so you begin… It conjures up images

phone: Castles, Knights and Sealing documents with a Wax Seal that could only be cracked by the
recipient. People will steal a look from time to time and think about what life was like so long ago. A Family Crest Ring
connects you with your history and your future at the same time. Where will your Ring be in 150 years?

wisdom and successful command in war.
Saint Andrew’s Cross – the Saltire. One legend has it that apostle
Andrew’s request to Roman authorities – not to be crucified on the same shape as the cross of Christ – was

Family is Forever
Ever wonder what happened to all the time? With the rigors of daily life, the next time we think about something truly
important but not urgent is three weeks – or months – from now while driving home from work, and the time after
that is anybody’s guess.
But family is important. Trends and technology come and go but family is forever and the things we do today – the
symbols we associate with our family will be concretized forever. This is our family – these symbols – these
