The History of Signet Rings
This is a piece of jewelry fit for royalty. In the middle ages, signet rings were worn by all nobility. All legal documents had to be signed with the seal of the king's signet ring by dipping it in hot wax. It was common for British men to receive one with their family crest for their 21st birthday in England. People wore the traditional signet ring on the pinky of the left hand, which is how Prince Charles wears his.
Since then, this style has gained popularity outside of the UK and worldwide. Fortunately, its etiquette has become much less rigid. In replacing a family crest, signet rings nowadays are engraved with a monogram or one's initials. You can wear yours on your right hand if you'd prefer, too.
Signet Ring Styles
Today, these rings can be used for more than just signing official documents. Our signet rings come in a wide variety of center stone shapes, including pear, oval, and trillion. Our Matte Finish Quinn Ring combines the traditional signet style with the solitaire center stone adding modern elements. If you're looking for a more feminine look, the 1.2mm band on our Tinsley Petite Dome Ring is for you.
