Knowing your ring size is a prerequisite for any ring or wedding ring purchase, whether it's a custom-made ring or not.
We offer below two methods to measure your ring finger size, which are both simple and fast.
This measure is made in millimeters as this is the simplest way to measure your ring or finger size.
Please check out the ring chart below to get the correspondence between your ring size in millimeters and the ring size used in your country (whereas USA or UK).
We also explain why French jewelers use millimeters to measure the ring size to ease the ring making process.
The history of signet rings has always been linked to the family crest.
If it was necessary in the past to be born noble to be able to wear his family crest on the finger, this is no longer the case today.
Similarly, in terms of the manufacturing method, the techniques have evolved.
The traditional method historically for the reproduction of family crest on the signet rings is the manual engraving made on a signet ring in forged gold.
This technique is the most beautiful and meaningful, realized by a master engraver, it allows the reproduction of particularly fine and complex details on several levels of depth.
This craftsman perpetuates this technique of engraving family crest.
Obviously, the cost is up to the difficulty and this technique is usually much too expensive for a simple engraving on a silver signet ring.
We will detail here our method of making a silver signet ring engraved with a family coat of arms.
Freemasonry has existed for centuries and uses symbols from its origins in the art of building.
This is how one finds almost systematically on the Masonic creations the compass and the square, the basic tools of the builders of the ancient time.
It should be noted that these symbols are also shared with the companions of duty.
It is therefore normal to see on most masonic rings these symbols reproduced in the form of engravings or moldings.
In the case of the project presented here, it is an 18 karat white-gold Freemason ring surmounted by a natural onyx stone receiving in its center the square and the 18-carat yellow gold compass.
American signet rings are characterized by a very bulky design, most of the time presenting a large central stone in the upper part of the plateau.
These rings are also completely filled with relief engravings, around the drawing or the central stone and on the two uprights of the ring of the signet ring.
They are often produced in series for a promotion party, to celebrate a championship or sporting event.
They require a lot of work for manufacturing, as we will see through this article.
