Signet rings have long been the favorite jewelry of well-to-do gents. Originally used to dip in wax and pressed onto envelopes to seal a letter with a family crest, signet rings embody the ability of jewelry to hold power beyond its physical form.
Nowadays, although crested signet rings remain a fixture of the higher classes, the signet ring has mostly become a go-to for luxury labels and streetwear names alike looking to explore the world of classic men's jewelry.
Characterized by a large, flat plane to the top of the ring, which usually features some sort of engraving or embellishment, signet rings are a perfect way to bring a statement into your look without overpowering your outfit.
Below, we’ve put together a selection of sterling silver signet rings and gold signet rings to prove that there’s one for every style. From out-there boldness to understated simplicity, the roundup includes names like Bottega Veneta, Alighieri, AGR, Burberry, and more.
