History of Gold
One of the earth’s most precious metals, gold has been treasured throughout the ages. Ancient civilizations associated gold with the sun and believed it to possess mystical and healing powers. Gold’s enduring beauty and permanence make it the most popular choice for jewelry. Extremely durable, gold will not corrode and is remarkably resistant to tarnishing.
The unit of measurement of gold content is the "karat", a term derived from the carob seed which was used as a weight to balance scales. Gold content is measured on a 24-unit scale, with 24 karat gold equivalent to 100% pure gold. As pure gold is quite malleable, it is alloyed with other metals to increase its strength. The higher the karat gold, the heavier the ring and the richer the color.
Signitas Class Rings and Bespoke Signet and Band rings are available with either a natural finish of polished metal or with a black "antique" finish designed to enhance engraved details. There is no additional charge for your choice of finish.
Free Inside Engraving
Signitas offers your choice of engraving inside your School or Bespoke ring. You can have your name or initials, your graduation year, your degree or other saying inside your Class Ring or Bespoke Ring. You can select either a block or script font for your inside engraving. There is no charge for inside engraving.
Free Outside Engraving
Signitas offers you a complete selection of options to personalize the side panels of your Class Ring. On each side, you may select characters or a wide range of artwork, including school-specific designs and symbols and designs representing various sports, clubs and activities.

Engraving Style: “Engraved” vs “Relief”
