18ct gold (750 parts of gold per thousand) makes beautiful looking signet rings, rich in colour and 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. 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 Medium (14mm x 12mm face size) is by far our best-selling gentleman’s signet ring. The Large (16mm x 13mm face size) suits hands that are larger or heavier set. The Small (13mm x 11mm) is our best-selling ladies’ signet but will feel just as comfortable on a slender gentleman’s hand. These measurements refer to the overall face size, rather than just the stone.
