The Herondale family ring is a silver ring, the Shadowhunter family ring worn by Herondales. It is decorated with herons, symbolizing the family name.

Like all Shadowhunter family rings, their magical enchantment makes them automatically fit the wearer.[1]


Due to Stephen Herondale's early and unexpected death, no family ring was left for his son, Jace, whom everyone thought died in his mother's womb.[2] In 2008, Tessa Gray, upon finding out about Jace, who is directly descended from her and Will's line and that he finally took on the family name, passed onto him, through Clary Fairchild, the Herondale ring that once belonged to her son, James Herondale. If not for Tessa's gift, Jace would have had to commission a ring from the Iron Sisters.[3]

Jace eventually had his own ring made, integrating the Lightwood symbols with the Herondales'.[4][5] Through Clary, the ring was given to Kit Herondale.[1]
