FIRST, WHAT IS A SIGNET RING?
A classic signet ring is a piece of jewelry typically worn on the pinky finger. This type of ring usually has a family crest or coat of arms on it. Signet rings were once used to seal documents, but now they are more likely to be worn as a fashion statement.
There is no strict rule about which finger you should wear a classic signet ring on, but the pinky finger is the most common choice. Some people also wear a signet ring on their middle or index finger. If you are unsure which finger to choose, try experimenting with different options until you find a ring fit that feels right for you.
Read on to learn more about signet rings and how to wear them.
1. PINKY SIGNET RING:
Many people like to place a signet ring on the pinkie finger of the non-dominant hand, so if you're right-handed, the pinky signet ring goes on the left pinkie. Traditionally, many women avoid wearing a signet ring on their wedding finger, so a signet ring on the pinkie is a suitable substitute.
If you are right-handed, try wearing your signet ring on your left pinkie for a day to see what it feels like. If you are left-handed, try the right pinkie instead. Examine how well the ring fit feels against your other fingers. The most important thing is your comfort level. You don't want to put it on a finger that will cause you discomfort.
Also, consider the fact that your pinkie is a highly visible finger. If you wear a signet ring on your pinkie, it will not wear as a subtle accessory. Instead, it will grab peoples' attention, which you may or may not want.

3. RING FINGER SIGNET RING
The wedding ring finger is the traditional choice for a signet ring. A ring finger signet ring is also a good choice if you want your ring to be subtle and not too noticeable.
However, you may not want to choose the wedding ring finger if you are married; since most women reserve this finger for their wedding bling.
4. THUMB SIGNET RING
The thumb is a good choice if you have large hands and fingers. It is also a good choice if you want your signet ring to be highly visible.
However, some people find that a thumb signet ring looks a bit odd. For example, if you are self-conscious about your hands, you may want to choose a different finger.
