Tips for buying a gold signet ring online

Posted on 13th March 2024

In today’s digital age, the convenience of online shopping extends to the world of custom-made jewellery. Purchasing a signet ring online, a bespoke piece holding personal significance intended to last for generations can require more consideration that simply adding it to your virtual cart. We have put together a list of valuable tips to ensure a smooth and successful online signet ring buying experience.

·      Make sure you know your finger size: It’s crucial to accurately measure your finger before placing an online order for a signet ring. Knowing your finger size allows us to offer advice on the most suitable size signet ring for you. We are happy to post out a complimentary set of sizing rings to establish an accurate size. Please click here to get in touch and arrange for a set of sizing rings to be sent out. Visiting a local jeweller for a professional measurement can also be beneficial. 

·      Choosing the right size for a gift: A signet ring can be a very meaningful gift for a loved one and you may wish to keep it as a surprise. In this case, we can offer a free re-size within 30 days of purchasing the signet ring. Alternatively, we can offer a gift voucher to be used online in the future. We strongly suggest getting in touch if you are not sure of the size. Gemstone signet rings can be very difficult to re-size so getting the right size before ordering is vital.

·      Choosing the right precious metal: Signet rings are traditionally crafted from precious metals like gold, silver or platinum. Each metal offers varying degrees of durability, weight, colour and price point. We suggest researching the properties of these different metals to find the one which is right for you.

·      Check the details: The price of a signet ring can vary significantly from one supplier to another. Checking the size, metal, weight and engraving quality before committing to purchase a bespoke signet ring will be worth your while. Often one supplier may offer a lower price but the ring could weigh less or potentially be laser engraved. If the detail looks too precise, there is a chance it is laser engraved, potentially touched up by hand after. If you are looking for a traditional hand engraved signet ring, it should be clear to the customer that the rings are only engraved by hand. We urge you to check with a supplier to make sure it is hand engraved.

·      Seek reputable suppliers: Purchasing your signet ring from a reputable online jeweller, with a proven track record is a must. Check if the company is well established and if they are a part of any jewellery associations. The National association of Jewellers is the UK’s leading jewellery trade body and you can view our profile on their website by clicking here.

·      Customer reviews: If you are spending a fair amount of money online, you want to make sure you are in safe hands. Reading customers reviews will offer valuable insights into the quality of the rings, engraving, size and the overall service provided. Please click here to see our google reviews.

A signet ring is a personalised symbol that can connect you to your family or hold special meaning. By following these tips, you can buy online in confidence and find the perfect signet ring for you or a loved one.
