WHAT ARE THE THINGS I SHOULD KNOW BE­FORE WEAR­ING A SIGNET RING?

DA MAN - Style - - Style FAQ -

The best, and most ideal way to wear your signet ring is on the lit­tle fin­ger of you non-lead­ing hand. In other words, if you’re right-handed wear it on the lit­tle fin­ger of your left hand, and vice versa. Why the pinky? Tra­di­tion­ally, this is be­cause you can make a seal like they did in the Mid­dle Ages us­ing hot wax with­out tak­ing off the ring. But in to­day’s fash­ion, wear­ing a signet ring on the pinky iso­lates the ring from the other parts of your hand, mak­ing it even more eye-pop­ping.

Wear­ing it on the fourth or ring fin­ger is also ac­cept­able, al­though that po­si­tion is usually re­served for wed­ding bands.
