How to Wear a Signet Ring with Style

A signet ring is a timeless, quintessential piece of jewellery. Whilst the origins of these rings dates back many centuries, in recent years, signet rings have undergone a revival in modern fashion. The surge in popularity of signet rings means that you often see both men and women sporting one as a trendy fashion statement nowadays.

Signet rings add a stylish touch and sense of sophistication to any outfit. Whether you want to make a statement with a bold and eye-catching design, or wear a more subtle, understated signet ring, there are a wealth of different styles and designs available to choose from. With so many possibilities, you’ll certainly be able to find the perfect signet ring for your needs.

If you’re thinking about buying a signet ring, and wondering how you can wear it with ultimate style, then we’ve written a blog below that’s just for you. Take a read of our tips to learn more, and if you’d like to discover our men’s signet rings - then please head over to the Anthony Paul Jewellery website today. 

Choosing the Right Size

One of the most important aspects of wearing a signet ring is the sizing. Put simply, signet rings need to be the right size to fit your finger. A ring that is too big or too small will not look good and will also feel uncomfortable to wear too.

If you want to wear a signet ring with style, then it’s vital that you choose the right size. This is defined as a size that is proportional to your hand, as opposed to one that is disproportionate and unflattering.

At Anthony Paul Jewellery, our professional and highly experienced team can ensure that you get the most optimal size and fit, and your signet ring adds a subtle sense of class and refinement to your clothing attire, whether you’re dressed more formally or more casually. 

Wearing One on the Correct Finger

Traditionally, signet rings are worn on the little finger in the UK. The wearer normally places the signet ring on their least dominant hand. For example, a right-handed person would wear the signet ring on their left hand’s pinky finger. 

If you want to celebrate the tradition and history of signet rings, then it’s an absolute must that you wear your signet ring on your pinky finger. Alternatively, if you want to take a more modern, current approach, you can sport your signet ring on an alternative finger. 

A popular choice of finger amongst many people, especially in the US, is to wear your signet ring on your middle finger. This practice has become particularly popular amongst celebrities and well-known socialites. Ultimately, it’s your choice of whether you want to respect tradition or experiment with a modern approach.

Matching With Other Pieces of Jewellery

If you want to inject even more style into your signet ring wearing, then matching it with other pieces of jewellery is a wonderful way to achieve this. When doing so, it’s important to consider the overall look and feel that you’re going for. There are different approaches such as matching metals or mixing and matching different metals, and it’s simply a personal preference. 

We recommend considering the size and shape of your signet ring, as well as the type of stone or engraving on it. Once you’ve done this, think about choosing jewellery which complements this style. If you desire a classic look, this could be a timeless watch or necklace. Alternatively, if you’re after something modern, then wearing a bangle is a superb touch.
