The classic look for a class ring often features a large, prominent center gem. But you can also opt to set small accent gems to give your ring a brilliant and unique sparkle and color.
The traditional signet ring form provides a lighter and very wearable shape to showcase your school's logo or crest. Some choose to embrace the signet tradition and reverse the design carving so it can leave an imprint in a wax seal.
Every ring we create is designed just for you, so you're not limited to a few common styles. Make a subtle band you're more likely to wear every day or a bold, sculptural statement that's truly one-of-a-kind.
How long does a project take?
Typically, your custom piece will be in your hands 2-3 weeks after we've finalized your design. However, because each project is different, the time it takes to complete your project may vary. Here's a rough breakdown of how long each part of our process takes:Design: As long as it takes for you to tell us it's perfect
When it comes to creating your design, we'll work at your pace. Some customers only need to exchange a few messages with us - we'll often be ready to make their piece within a few days. Others may prefer to design and iterate with us over many weeks, or even months.Production: Approximately 2 weeks
Once you've approved a design, we'll manufacture your piece, finishing all the details by hand. When it's ready, we'll send you photographs of your finished piece so you can give us your seal of approval before we ship it to you.Shipping: 1-3 days (domestic), Approximately 1 week (international)
We offer free shipping within the US via FedEx or USPS, and we ship international packages via DHL Worldwide Express, one of the fastest services available. Depending on location, international shipments can sometimes be delayed by local customs for inspection, which can extend the delivery time.
How much will my ring cost?
In general, our custom rings are the same price as similar rings off-the-shelf ('similar' meaning a comparable selection of metals and gemstones used, which are the biggest factors in price). Our aim is to make high-quality custom designs accessible to everyone.
Each ring we produce starts off as a brand new concept. Because of that, it’s difficult to know how much a piece is going to cost without knowing a bit more about the idea you have in mind.
The easiest way to figure out how much your ring will cost is to start a consultation with us and let our team know what you're looking for - we can provide an estimate with only a few details.
When do I get to see a design? Do I have to pay first?
There's no charge to discuss your design and price out options with our team. We request a deposit prior to producing 3D models and renderings of your design and that deposit goes toward the final cost of producing your piece.
Why design a custom class ring?
There are a ton of great reasons you might consider designing your own class ring. Maybe you have a unique style in mind, or you want to represent multiple schools or degrees. To help inspire you, here are just a few of the great reasons our customers have chosen to design a custom class ring.
Many of our customers tell us that the styles available from their school are too limited. They're looking for something a bit more delicate and feminine, something with a distinctive shape, or maybe just a band. One customer asked us to design his ring face with a bold cobra gripping a black opal in its teeth. Surprisingly, this wasn't one of the designs his school offered!
One customer wanted to match a no-longer-available ring style so that his son's ring would match the one he received from the same school decades earlier. Another had lost his old ring and wanted to recreate the piece in the old style.
A number of our customers wanted to feature several schools and degree programs on the same ring. One customer chose to feature his family's coat of arms on the the face, his bachelor's alma mater on one side, and his graduate program on the other side.
