16 best signet rings for women - the 2021 pinky ring trend Meghan Markle loves

Meghan Markle officially made the signet ring cool again...

Carla Challis

The signet ring has been a staple piece of jewellery of the royal family for centuries, but it wasn’t until Meghan Markle stepped out a few years ago wearing a signet ring from Missoma did us women suddenly take note – and realise we’d been missing one in our lives.

Gone are the days when signet rings are just for aristocracy or Prince Charles, who has been sporting a chunky version on his pinky finger for decades. Usually engraved with the family crest or initials, signet rings are officially cool again thanks to the Duchess of Sussex’s £89 version.

Meghan's gorgeous Missoma signet ring was first spotted during a royal engagement to Chichester

Meghan’s ring even had a hidden meaning. According to the site, the gold open heart engraving, set with a white cubic zirconia, “is a symbol representing emotions of love, passion and friendship. One to wear close to the heart".

The Duchess of Sussex was first spotted wearing the signet ring in October 2018, during a visit to Chichester with husband Prince Harry. Wearing a green silk shirt by & Other Stories and matching Hugo Boss leather skirt, her outfit – and accessories – won rave reviews.
