There is nothing more classic than a signet ring.
In past, it was worn by gentlemen on their pinky fingers, as a seal to sign important documents. A quick look at the pages of history, will show you why women should have been the ones wearing those utilitarian rings in the first place.
One of the first things that occur in life, is being named. You are given a name that you carry through life in school, in relationships, in employment and in your hopes and dreams.

At Folklor, we are committed to offering a white glove service for all of our customers. We want to replicate the experience of buying new, when shopping our carefully curated selection of preloved pieces. If you spot a piece that you love, but were hopeful for it another size, we are happy to take the piece to be resized for you. We simply charge what the goldsmith charges us, this typically ranges between $30-$50 per size. The turnaround time is roughly 5-10 days and your item will shipped out as soon as payment is received for the resizing fee.
To get a piece resized you can leave a comment in the notes section during checkout, send us an email (email@example.com), or shoot us a message on instagram (@_folk_lor).
You've decided you want a piece resized, what next? Purchase the ring as is and leave a note at checkout (or email us, or DM us on Instagram) with your desired size. We will take the ring with us to the goldsmith on our next visit. Once the resizing is complete, generally 5-7 days, we will pick the piece up and will send an invoice for the resizing fee. Once the invoice is paid, we will ship you your treasure.
All resizing pieces are final sale.
The pieces on Folklor are previously owned, previously lived in, and previously loved; because of this, each one is individual and might show signs of wear. Please inspect pictures carefully before purchasing and feel free to reach out with any questions! I understand it can be difficult to make decisions when the sizing is not standard to a store you know, I would love to help ease this process for you by being easily accessible via Instagram or email. I will do my best to make your shopping experience as seamless as possible and to answer any questions or concerns you have.
The descriptions used on the pieces will be those provided by the previous owner. If the material or stone is unknown, we will describe it by the colour and not reference a specific material (i.e. gold vs gold-toned, or a Sapphire vs. a blue stone).
It is my goal to ensure the treasures you buy from Folkor spark joy and bring you happiness. That being said, this is an independently owned business without unlimited resources and for this reason all pieces are sold as found and final sale.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns. Happy shopping and thank you for supporting a slow-fashion and sustainable shop!
Weight Reference Guide
**All pieces are preloved and have lived full lives (and in some cases many). All photos are untouched and reflect the condition of the piece, please inspect carefully and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Get a piece of paper and a ruler and do a rough sketch of the dimensions of the piece.
Do you like the amount of space the piece takes up?
Look at how much the piece weighs and cross reference with our weight chart.
Are you happy with how solid the piece will feel when you wear it?
Vintage vs. Antique?
What is the difference between vintage and antique anyway? There is a lot of ambiguity around these terms, however at Folklor, this is how we define them:
Estate - Made less than 30 years ago.
Vintage - Made between 30-100 years ago.
Antique - Made over 100+ years ago.
It is important to note, we can't always be certain of a pieces exact origin, but based on the design and style of a piece, we can make an educated guess.
