WHAT IS A SIGNET RING?

A signet ring is crafted with a smooth and sleek design. The signet ring is adorned with an oval or square seal plate, made of either metal or stone. The use of signet rings dates back thousands of years, and they have been used to signify affiliation with a family or lineage, for example, with an engraved coat of arms.

Today, the signet ring is primarily a fashion statement, often seen on the fingers of celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Kanye West, and Travis Scott. With its simple yet striking appearance, it appeals to everyone from actors to rock musicians and rappers, men and women, young and old - and we understand why.

THE HISTORY OF THE SIGNET RING - POPULAR IN ANTIQUITY, POPULAR TODAY

Even though its appearance has changed over time, the existence of the signet ring can be traced all the way back to ancient times. Back then, it didn't have the simple and sleek look we know today, but was far more ornate and embellished.

The history of the signet ring thus spans an enormous period, and men have worn it for thousands of years across multiple generations. However, it was actually in the 17th and 18th centuries that the signet ring became more commonly used among the population. The ring became a familial symbol, signaling social status, and typically, it was engraved with initials or the family coat of arms.

HOW THE SIGNET RING IS WORN TODAY

Today, many prefer the minimalist look, where a signet ring can have either a completely smooth seal plate or be adorned with a fine natural stone. The shape is typically oval, square, and in some cases hexagonal or octagonal, and the ring can be recognized by its distinctive appearance. Signet rings are available in both gold and silver, and the ring is important in the fashion scene right now - in fact, it is one of the most popular ring types for men, perhaps because of its bold and somewhat masculine appearance that appeals to many.

Some still follow the tradition that originated in Britain, which dictates that a signet ring is worn on the left pinky finger. However, there are no rules about which finger the ring should be worn on - for example, Winston Churchill still wore his signet ring on his ring finger, and many choose to do the same today.

THE SIGNET RING IS THE PERFECT PERSONAL ACCESSORY

The relatively large flat surface of a signet ring makes it ideal for personal engravings. You can go the classic route with coat of arms and initials, but you can also have engraved precisely the motif or symbol that means something to you.

Unlike in the old days, engraving a signet ring today is neither expensive nor troublesome - at IX STUDIOS, for example, you simply need to upload a digital file along with your order of one of our rings, and we can handle the engraving for you for an additional fee. After just a few weeks, you'll have your completely personalized ring - it doesn't get much easier than that.
