The term Chevalier literally means 'Knight' or horseman in French originating from the word 'cheval' (horse). Men of this order of chivalry, as well as royals and other nobles commonly wore rings carrying their insignia or coat of arms as an engraving (intaglio) or as a relief carving. The shape of the signet ring was usually graduated from narrow at the back of the shank to wide at the front. Numerous customs and traditions exist worldwide for chevalier rings. For example, it was once considered proper for British aristocracy to wear chevaliers on their left pinky-finger (hence they're also sometimes called pinky rings). Some of the oldest and most artful chevalier rings however historically are ancient Greek, carrying coins and carvings that with the beauty and wisdom of the ancient world.
Our rings are custom sized free of charge after your order within just a few days, to a large number of sizes and half-sizes. The size options for each ring can be selected within the product page.
Among most excavated jewelry from Greece, troy and the Hellenistic world, when one comes across ancient rings, they are very likely to be open-ended 'wrap rings'. The ancients found beautiful ways to decorate both open ends, often with animals heads (lions, rams, etc) and tails or with precious gems and stones. The sizing advantage however of an open ring was very likely the same then as it is now! Open ended rings offer the wearer the ability to adjust size and fine tune the ring on your finger. There is therefore usually some flexibility between sizes with such rings. We advise that you read the data sheet on each ring to check the size adjustable variance before ordering just to make sure.
