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 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.
