ENGRAVING OPTIONS

DEEP SEAL ENGRAVING

Traditional deep seal engraving is the most popular method of engraving signet rings. We create your design by carving deeply into the metal, hand engraving the design in reverse.

Once the seal engraving has been completed, we use the engraved signet ring to produce a 3d wax impression - the seal. Your ring creates. your ring will arrive presented in a beautiful gift box, with an encapsulated impression of your design and a wax taper to make your own seals. If you would prefer for us to engrave your design as it is seen on paper, i.e. not in reverse, please let us know by using the comment box found in your shopping bag.

SURFACE CUT ENGRAVING

Surface engraving uses the same gravers used to deep seal engrave, but does not carve as deep into the metal. To create depth of detail, hundreds of lines of various widths are cut until the design is brought to life. This style of engraving is perfect for cufflinks and is also a popular choice for signet rings, but does not have the same longevity as seal engraving.

ENGRAVED MESSAGE INSIDE THE BAND

YOU CAN HAVE A MESSAGE OR MOTTO OF UP TC APPROX 25 CHARACTERS HAND ENGRAVED INSIDE THE BAND FOR JUST €50. OF COURSE, THIS DEPENDS ON THE FINGER SIZE, SO TALK TO US ABOUT WHETHER YOUR ENGRAVING WILL FIT. YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM TWO STYLES EITHER ROMAN CAPITALS OR UPPER AND LOWER CASE SCRIPT.

METAL COLOURS AND CARATS

 

PRECIOUS METALS

YELLOW GOLD

The natural colour of gold is by far the most popular shade used in jewellery making. Yellow gold is usually alloyed with copper and silver to strengthen it and give the jewellery longevity. The shade of the gold depends on its gold content and 18 carat gold generally has a richer yellow colour than 9 carat.

WHITE GOLD

WHITE GOLD IS SIMPLY YELLOW GOLD MIXED WITH DIFFERENT ALLOYS TO GIVE ITS COLOUR.USUALLY CREATED BY ADDING PALLADIUM, SILVER AND COPPER, THE COLOUR IS NOT WHITE LIKE PLATINUM BUT MORE OF A LIGHT GREY STEEL COLOUR. THESE DAYS, JEWELLERS OFTEN PLATE WHITE GOLD WITH RHODIUM (A MEMBER OF THE PLATINUM FAMILY) TO ENHANCE ITS COLOUR. WE CAN DO THIS FOR YOU, BUT WE'LL ASK YOU FIRST, AS RHODIUM PLATING WEARS OFF AND NEEDS RE-PLATING.

ROSE GOLD

Also known as red gold and pink gold, this shade became popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century and is often referred to as Russian gold. Made by adding copper to yellow gold, we usually use a pink, blush-like tint for our rose gold signet rings. The higher the copper content, the stronger the red in the colour and the shade can vary from carat to carat. 9 carat is usually much pinker than the 18 carat gold.

9 CARAT GOLD

OF THE THREE CARATS OF GOLD WE OFFER, 9CT(375 PARTS OF GOLD PER THOUSAND) HAS THE LOWEST GOLD CONTENT. AS A RESULT, IT IS THE TOUGHEST OF THE THREE, THE HIGHER THE GOLD CONTENT, THE SOFTER THE METAL. WE WOULD RECOMMEND CT GOLD IF YOU'RE VERY ACTIVE AND YOUR HANDS TAKE A LOT OF WEAR AND TEAR. YELLOW GOLD, THE ELEMENTS NATURAL COLOUR, IS BY FAR THE MOST TRADITIONAL COLOUR FOR SIGNET RINGS. YELLOW GOLD IS USUALLY ALLOYED WITH COPPER AND SILVER TO STRENGTHEN IT AND GIVE THE JEWELLERY LONGEVITY. THE SHADE OF THE GOLD DEPENDS ON ITS GOLD CONTENT AND 9 CARAT GOLD IS THE PALEST OF THE THREE CARAT GOLDS WE OFFER.

14 CARAT GOLD

14ct gold (585 parts of gold per thousand) is a popular choice of gold for a signet ring, as over half of it is pure gold and it is still very durable. The heavy weight Rebus signet rings in 9ct, 14ct or 18ct gold will last a lifetime. 14ct gold is a happy medium between the 3 carats we offer, colour and durability wise.

18 CARAT GOLD

18ct gold (750 parts of gold per thousand) makes beautiful looking signet rings, rich in colour that improves with age as it takes on its own patina. This is the highest carat of gold we use and makes up the majority of the signet rings we create.

PLATINUM

Platinum is the heaviest of all precious metals, almost twice as heavy as 14 carat gold, but its real appeal lies in its enduring bright white colour. Platinum will never tarnish and maintains its natural colour throughout its life, making it the perfect choice for an exclusive heirloom piece of jewellery. At 95% purity, platinum is also hypoallergenic.
