Hidden Prints

  • Don't Leave Your Prints Behind is a set of five signet rings worn on the fingertip of each finger. Each ring is set with a plexiglass signet that has the corresponding fingerprint laseretched on the inside. The fingerprints can be seen and touched from the inside, but the wearer leaves no fingerprint, reversing the function of traditional signet rings as a form of identification.
