Rings worn by Romanov men

What kinds of rings did the Grand Dukes wear; crests, gems, etc.  I know GD Serge and KR wore rings.

Signet rings were very normal for men at this time. I would suspect something from the coat of arms (heraldically, the crest is not the shield but the thing that appears on top of the helmet).

As I understand things, it is also usual in Russia for men to wear wedding rings.
