When wedding rings are not worn

I learned something new today while reading this article in Harper’s Bazaar.

A lot of men from the upper classes in Britain do not wear wedding rings (Prince William and the Duke of Edinburgh, for example). It’s an old tradition. The only piece of jewellery that is worn is a signet ring.

As etiquette expert William Hanson explains, signet rings should only have a family crest on them rather than initials.
