Trend: Signet Rings

Over the last few months a jewellery trend has emerged onto the scene and it's definitely one that I've been trying out and loving.  Signet rings, formerly know as the 'Gentleman's ring' go way back to the old testament.  Traditionally worn on the pinky finger the signet ring often bore an engraving of the family crest or his initials.  But as with most things that started with men, us gals are claiming them for our own and they've become the latest addition to everyone's bling wishlist.  But if you want the really good news, the high street have also cottoned on to this trend, so regardless of your budget, there's a signet ring for you.

In terms of styling the simplicity of a signet ring worn on the pinky finger (as tradition would suggest) is pretty effective but if you're not so much of a minimalist then pair with other signets or delicate stacking rings on your other fingers. There are no rules here, just let your style speak for itself.

I've made a little mood/inspo board below with a few of my favourite Signet Rings out there at the moment.  Some brands you might recognise and some you might not, either way, enjoy x

    I love this type of ring! I used to wear one with an inset Fleur de Lis in it almost every day! Hmmm, I wonder if that is still hanging around in a drawer somwhere!?!

        I love signet rings so much….
        and yours displayed are so beautiful.
        However, for some unexplained reasons, I have been unable to access the Cinco site
        which is a little bit of a shame.

      I have very slim fingers too, but the Mimi Et Toi ones have lots of small sizes 🙂 x
