The choice of a lighter carat white gold makes a beautiful basis for any hand engraved Rebus design. Evoking timeless elegance and luxury, the shine and stylish British modernity of this hand made piece demonstrate its high quality as well as a sense of heritage.
Of the three carats of gold we offer, 9ct (375 parts of gold per thousand) has the lowest gold content. As a result, it is the toughest of the three - the higher the gold content, the softer the metal. We would recommend 9ct gold if you're very active and your hands take a lot of wear and tear. White gold is simply yellow gold mixed with different alloys to give it its colour. Usually created by adding palladium and silver, the colour is not white like platinum but more of a light grey steel colour. It is usually a little more expensive than yellow or rose gold, as the alloys added to create the white colour are precious metals.
This weight and colour will easily suit a 14mm x 12mm face size, our best-selling gentleman's signet ring, the 16mm x 13mm for larger hands and the 13mm x 11mm for ladies or a slender gentleman's hand. Our 11mm x 9mm face size is specially designed for smaller hands.

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
