This contemporary signet ring is the signet ring for the name Perrott, which hails from England, Scotland, Ireland. The most likely explanation for the name is that it derives from "little Peter", with Peter from the Latin "Petrus", meaning "stone" in Greek. Other similar names are Perrot, Perrin, Perron, Parrell and Perowne. Most of the coats of arms for the Perrott family include the 3 pears seen on this ring. Another variation of the name is that it derived from a nickname for the parrot. The parrot is often used in Heraldic crests associated with the PERROTT family. A parrot can be seen perching on a branch on both sides of the coat of arms carved on our ring. The signet ring includes the motto for the Perrott family "Amo Ut Invenio" which translates to "I love as I find" in Latin roughly meaning I love each person as they are. The hallmark stamp dates the ring to 2007 and 9K. It is likely that around the year 2007, a member of the family (bearing any one of the names above) embarked on a hunt for an older 17th or 18th century antique signet ring bearing the 3 pears coat of arms and the motto Amo Ut Invenio. Unable to source one, this individual likely had this signet ring custom made, as the three pears in the coat of arms are an accurate version of early 17th and 18th century signet rings. Historically signets were worn on the little finger (to more easily stamp a document) so are frequently found in small sizes. It can be sized larger. If you happen to have any of these names in your lineage or this ring's motto and charming coat of arms with its images of the 3 pears flanked by parrots perched on a branch just appeals to you, by all means you should consider this interesting contemporary signet ring! Information is from the Fairbairn's book of Crests.
