Which Signet Ring

Which way around should your wear a signet ring?

My personal feeling with this is that you should do whatever is most comfortable for you.

However the general consensus is that you should wear them on your non leading hand and with the bottom of the crest nearest the base knuckle or your wrist.

As far as I know the British Royal Family tend to wear them this way.

Traditionally one would create a seal by rolling your hand outward and impressing into the wax. Rather than making a fist and pressing down vertically from above. This way the crest will be the correct way up. There is more control in the former method and you can use your other hand to assist and gently apply pressure in the right areas to get a good seal.

Find your family crest.
