The rich gleam of the high quality 18ct rose gold in this elegant shape signet makes your unique Rebus ring a timeless yet modern item of jewellery. Ready to be passed down as a piece of heritage and history, the shape and colour of the gold create the perfect background for your hand engraved design.
18ct gold (750 parts of gold per thousand) makes beautiful looking signet rings, rich in colour that improves with age as it takes on its own patina. The majority of the signet rings we make are in 18ct gold. A Rebus signet ring either in 9ct, 14ct or 18ct gold will last a lifetime.
This rose gold ring perfectly suits a standard 14mm diameter face, our best-selling gentleman's size, or the 11mm diameter size for smaller hands. Both these rings are thick enough to take a deep seal engraving.
Deep seal engraving
Traditional deep seal engraving is the most popular method of engraving signet rings. We create your design by carving deeply into the metal, hand engraving the design in reverse.
Once the seal engraving is completed, we use the engraved signet ring to produce a 3d wax impression - the seal. Your ring will arrive presented in a beautiful gift box, with an encapsulated impression of your design and a wax taper to make your own seals. If you would prefer for us to engrave your design as it is seen on paper, i.e. not in reverse, please let us know by using the comment box found in your shopping bag. read less
Surface cut engraving
As with seal engraving, surface engraving is produced by hand, using handheld gravers. In fact, it's the same technique used by traditional bank note engravers.
Unlike seal engraving, we don't carve deep into the metal - instead, we create the design by cutting hundreds of lines of varying widths and depths until the design comes to life. This method is ideal for cufflinks and it also looks effective on signet rings, but does not have the same longevity as seal engraving. read less
