Family Crest Signet Rings are unique examples of handcrafted and cast rings. They predominately feature elements from the family Coat of Arms, such as the shield or the crest. These family Coat of Arms can date back to the 10th century, and were a means of clan recognition.
Over the past number of decades there has been a great interest in the use of items displaying family pride. Emigrants from Ireland, England, Poland, Spain and Germany play a huge part in the revival of heraldic items, like family crest signet rings.
Family Crest Signet Rings For Men
There are two face designs which are suitable for men to wear. If you want to indulge and have the full Coat of Arms engraved or cast on your ring, the cushion style would be most suitable.
The cushion style ring is rectangular in style and the face of the ring is large enough to have the crest and shield engraved on it, a beautiful ring that will get a lot of attention and admiration. It is called a cushion ring because it is rectangular in appearance just like a pillow cushion.
Family Crest Signet Rings In Gold
The engraving of the crest or Coat of Arms can be carried out in White or Yellow Gold. Yellow Gold is perhaps the most popular and suits most complexions and is generally about ten percent cheaper than White Gold. The rings can be natural in finish, or if requested can be designed in an antique finish.
Family Crest Signet Rings in Silver
The most popular of all rings are the manufactured in Sterling Silver. Sterling Silver Rings are easy to work with and engraved on. Because silver is currently, much cheaper than gold, it fits in with the consumer budget a little better. The rings when engraved are dispatched to the customer in a gift box enhanced with heraldic designs.
