Mens Signet Rings
Men's signet rings are traditional and classic statement pieces that are available in a variety of styles and designs.
Different styles of men's signet rings
Traditional style men's signet rings typically have a plain tapered band with a bevelled, round, shield or square crown. Some signet rings are embellished with engraved patterns, designs or initials.
Classic men's signet rings usually feature a simple oval or square stone. Black Onyx signet rings are very popular, and so are green Chrysoprase rings. Half sovereign coin signet rings are a retro classic design. The heavyweight rings show off a claw set 1914 gold coin, and are embellished with twisted rope detail.
Men's signet rings that are encrusted with round sparkling diamonds are lavish, modern designer pieces. Simple, rectangular face signet rings are an alternative contemporary accessory option.
Rare men's signet rings often feature decorative detail to the crown. Some designs have a classic silver fleur-de-lis motif positioned over contrasting black Onyx. Many vintage men's signet rings have a heavily decorated shank with handcrafted gemstone centrepiece.
Antique men's signet rings are usually made from yellow or rose gold. Some styles feature a traditional plain shield head, with decorative shank, and other designs are heavily engraved on the crown and sides.
Precious metal variations of men's signet rings
Many styles of traditional men's signet rings are made from 18K yellow gold. 18K gold contains 18 parts pure gold per 24 parts alloy, giving it a purity of 75%. 9K gold options are also available.
Sterling silver is often used to enhance the appearance of black Onyx. Many vintage men's signet rings are made from hallmarked sterling silver.
Rose gold is a variation of gold that is mixed with copper alloy to create its distinctive colour. This precious metal is often used for elegant and classic men's signet rings.
Stainless steel signet rings are a very popular jewellery choice for men. These rings are hardwearing but still very stylish.
Classic gemstone embellishments of men's signet rings
Aside from the popular black Onyx, other popular gemstone centrepieces include red Carnelian and Amber.
Elaborate men's signet rings usually combine two or three decorative features. Some men's rings have a centre stone with a raised motif, and channel set diamonds or Cubic Zirconia crystals arranged around the bezel.
Large cabochon gemstones are centrepiece features on men's signet rings that have plain and highly decorative shanks. The smooth, shaped and polished stones are sometimes encased in marcasite detail.
