The classic Cushion 9ct yellow gold creates a perfect frame for any stone in a Rebus signet ring. Perfectly matched with any colour, you will be the proud wearer of a stylish yet traditional piece. Each ring is created with a solid back to give the stone additional strength and stability.
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. 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 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.
