Cushion Signet Rings

The S&C Cushion Signet Ring is a popular classic if you want something slightly different.

 

The cushion rings have a larger, square looking face which gives slightly more area to engrave on. This particularly suits the larger more complicated crest or those with a substantial crest and long motto. Sometimes the shape and nature of the crest will fit better into a square shape rather than an oval.

 

The Cushion shapes are produced from high density stampings just like the ovals, we use the same dies as originally crafted by hand since 1860 in London. They are generally more substantial and weigh a bit more than the equivalent oval ring so if you want to make a real statement this is the one.

Cushion Signet Ring Examples

Here is a small portfolio of our work showing most of the variations of Cushion Signet Ring you can have. 9 and 18 carat yellow gold is most popular. We can also make them in Rose Gold, White Gold and Platinum but please note these do take longer to produce.

Weight Options

As with the Oval range, we offer the cushion shape either in a heavy or standard weight. The cushion rings are generally a bit heavier as they carry more gold in the shoulders which are wider. The head is roughly the same thickness as the equivalent oval ring but they have fuller shoulders sweeping down from the head.

 

Heavy Weight Cushion

Available in all sizes; Small C1H, Medium C2H, Large C3H and Extra Large C4H.

 

Standard Weight Cushion

It is possible to have a more delicate looking cushion ring. We offer two only in standard cushion; the Lady’s Small Cushion (code C1) and the Gentleman’s Large Cushion (C3).The Lady’s small cushion in standard is a popular ring and looks finer and more feminine. We recommend the Large Cushion in standard for surface engraved monogram work which requires less depth in the head than seal engraving a crest.

 

Every ring is shaped by hand and each one is different depending on finger size but as a rule of thumb the heavy weight ring head is 1 – 1.5mm thicker than the standard. The heavy weight ring carries more gold in the shoulders and is thicker around the band. All dimensions and weights quoted can vary slightly depending on finger size
