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


Due to Stephen Herondale's early and unexpected death, no family ring was left for his son, Jace Herondale, whom everyone thought died in his mother's womb.[1] In 2008, Tessa Gray, upon finding out about Jace, who is directly descended from her and Will's line, and the fact 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.[2]
