Signet Ring Specialists

Special Commissions

At Signets and Cyphers we pride ourselves in creating something truly original for you. We can carry out special commissions to make something a little different. Please contact us to discuss.

Carving on the Shoulders

We can carry out carving-engraving on the shoulders like the example here. Simple carving like this on the shoulders of the ring brings an antique effect and can look stunning.

 

This example here shows carving on a red sardonyx ring which was also seal engraved with a crest. We can also do carving on solid gold rings. Please contact us for assistance on the style of carving.

Bloodstone Seal Ring with Gold carving and full coat of arms

Bloodstone Ring with Gold carving

We created this special very large bloodstone seal ring engraved with a full coat of arms. The ring was of ‘stamped’ origin and then countersunk to fit the specially selected bloodstone.

 

Engraving embellishments were carried out in the shoulders and around the band, with a Fleur de Lys on one side and a Lion Rampant within the design on the other.

Cornelian Seal Pendant - Signets and Cyphers

Seal Pendants

We can create beautiful seal pendants which make a fabulous alternative to a signet ring. We set them with a choice of gemstones and can seal engrave them with a family crest or monogram. This fine example here is made of solid 9 carat gold and is set with a rounded cornelian gemstone which was seal engraved with a guardian angel family crest.

 

Engraving on the curve like this is more complex and looks fabulous but the seal itself can look less deep on the edges of the design as we do not wish to engrave too deep where the stone is a bit thinner. (Rounded stones like this are known in the trade as ‘buff top’). We can also supply with solid gold chain. Please call to discuss if you wish to commission a seal pendant.

Engraving Plates

We can make engraving plates in silver or gold for presentation items. This can include shotgun ovals for the underside of the stock or plates to be recessed into any wooden item such as this pear shaped urn.

Family Rings

We can carry out seal engraving on a range of rings for the whole family. Our hand engraver is so skilled he can carry our close duplication of crests even though they are all done separately by hand. They might be very slightly different but we are always astonished at how close to a duplicate they are.

Other Ring Styles

There are other signet ring styles you may have seen and we get asked quite frequently if we can offer styles like the Claddagh Ring, Shield shaped signet and even a swivel top which is frequently used as a Masonic Signet Ring or Fraternity Ring.

 

We can also make a reverse oval as the example opposite.

Please call to discuss.

Examples of reverse oval signet rings where the face of the ring is wider We can create these these to order in both solid gold and gemstone.

Military Signet Rings, Clubs and Associations

We frequently create rings with Regimental Crests or Coats of Arms for official organisations.

 

Here are two examples:

1. RAMC Signet Ring.

2. Regimental Signet Ring for The Life Guards of the Household Cavalry.

If you would like to discuss a special commission please contact us and we'll be happy to help you create something unique.
