The traditional way to wear a signet ring it to wear it on the little finger of the non-dominant hand. Thus, the standard is for the ring to be worn on the left-hand little finger. Winston Churchill, famously left-handed, wore his signet ring on the ring finger of his right hand. Through history, the signet ring was traditionally worn by men, but in recent times, women are just as likely to wear a signet ring as a man. Tradition dictates that the engraved coat of arms or crest always faces the wearer rather than outwards so that it cannot be read by the enemy.
