A 14ct gold classic Cushion shape in hard wearing and precious 14ct yellow gold gives this Rebus signet ring a solid feel with a sense of heritage. Designed with solid backs, giving the semi-precious stones the strength and stability they deserve, these signet rings will provide many years of pleasure.
14ct gold (585 parts of gold per thousand) is a popular choice of gold for a signet ring, as over half of it is pure gold and it is still very durable. The heavy weight Rebus signet rings in 9ct, 14ct or 18ct gold will last a lifetime. Yellow gold, the element’s natural colour, is by far the most traditional colour for signet rings. Yellow gold is usually alloyed with copper and silver to strengthen it and give the jewellery longevity. The shade of the gold depends on its gold content and 18 carat gold has a richer yellow colour than the paler 9 carat gold.
One of the world’s most popular semi-precious stones used in jewellery for thousands of years, Tiger’s Eye takes a honey gold colour with a uniquely silky sheen, reflecting light as it hits the stone’s fibrous layers. This effect is known ‘chatoyancy’ and is described as similar to the sheen on a spool of silk. Tiger’s Eye is found largely in South Africa and Australia. It is said that Tiger’s Eye allows the wearer to view the world with great insight and clear thinking, bringing luck and protection from the evil eye.
The 14mm x 12mm medium sized face is our best-selling gentleman’s size and the large cushion shape signet (16mm x 13mm) looks striking on the ring or little finger on a larger hand. The small (12mm x 10mm) is a little more discreet and will suit smaller hands. These measurements refer to the overall face size, rather than just the stone.
