18k Gold Signet Rings Men–Page 2
Discover our collection of men's signet rings in 18-karat gold here. The signet ring is one of the rare pieces of jewelry to be almost exclusively masculine; its popularity is incomparably higher among men than among women. This type of wide ring allows the creation of voluminous and varied designs allowing men to wear fine or precious stones accompanied by clearly visible engravings or moldings.
Here we present to you the collection of men's signet rings in solid gold from the Vivalatina jewelry workshop. Here you will only discover original signet ring designs for men available in white gold, pink gold, or yellow gold (knowing that we also work with black gold). We also work with pure gold and make these 24k gold signet ring and ring designs. Signet rings are our expertise and we count on hundreds of designs made from our collection or custom-made for our clients. The signet ring is the single most used jewelry by men for centuries and still is very popular with a great choice of designs.
All the designs of signet rings presented in our collection are handcrafted in our workshop. Only the cutting and faceting of the precious stones set on our jewelry are done by professional lapidaries and not in our jewelry workshop.
As you have certainly noticed, we do not resell junk or simple jewelry plated with fine gold and mass-produced, but we manufacture original jewelry in solid 18k gold in our manufacturing workshop. This implies a lead time necessary for the manufacture of your jewelry, so much so that we detail the time required for its manufacture in the section: Handcrafted Jewelry, on the product page in question.
We master all stages of manufacturing our 18k gold signet rings in our jewelry workshop, from the creation of digital CAD models, the 3D printing process, the lost wax casting process, the work on the jeweler's bench of solid gold, as well as the setting of our precious stones and diamonds, thus allowing us to guarantee the quality of our jewelry.
History and meaning of signet rings
The origin of signet rings dates back to antiquity, to the beginnings of human history. 7000 years ago, in Mesopotamia (Iraq), the Sumerians were the first known civilization, they were the first to write legal texts and to sign official documents, made of clay tablets, with sculpted stone scrolls, which would soon be replaced by rings set with “intaglio” (carved stones). These seals mounted on rings, intaglio rings, are also ornamental jewelry symbols of legal and social power which would be taken up by the Egyptians, the Greeks then the Romans.
In Europe, during the Middle Ages, it was the nobles who used rings and signet rings engraved on stone or metal to affix their coat of arms. The engraving of family coats of arms, the heraldic art, developed and was once again used to sign or seal official letters or documents to authenticate their author. Historically, signet rings or signet rings are therefore a symbol of status and power in modern Western societies, a reminiscence of the noble origin of this type of ring.
The wearing of the signet ring became democratized by leaving the world of nobility and today, everyone is free to wear this type of ring for men. Although most people who are not noble do not have a family crest to engrave on their signet ring, it can be personalized in multiple ways as we detail below.

How to choose your signet ring
If you don't know your ring size, this tutorial will walk you through how to measure it either using one of your rings or by directly measuring your finger size. This method is precise and gives good results for all our clients.
Also, be sure of the size of the ring's plateau you want, as signet rings are much bigger than wedding rings or traditional men's rings. We work with solid gold or sterling silver, gemstones, and ancient intaglio rings, so you be sure to get your signet ring design with the style you want.
