Dumb Question

Another dumb question from MECE86, but does UofH have an “official” class ring? And if so, which one is it? Family of a UofH relative wants to get him a ring as a surprise for his 50th birthday (hope he doesn’t read coogfans), but aren’t sure which design to get, so they asked me; I obviously don’t know either so I’m asking the board.

Fyi, my Dad has the gold ring with the red stone. Thought I was being cool when I got the one with the flat surface and antique black inlay lettering. I regret that decision, and now wish I had gone with the traditional design.

Yes, it does.

They started around 2007 or so.

I have one. It has a Zeke Cullen building engraving on one side, the UH seal on the other, and a big “UH” on top.

There’s even a ring “blessing” ceremony where they bring a big crate full of newly made rings to the zoo and have Shasta sit on it.

I have the same ring and it says “in time” and BSEE on it.

I used to wear it all the time, but I bent it (10 karat) from slamming my hand on bar tables while watching the Coogs one too many times and my finger got fatter from age 30-40 so it doesn’t get worn as much anymore… I can probably start wearing it again since I don’t drink anymore :joy:

Mine cost a lot more than $720 though… And I didn’t get a diamond… I prefer the traditional look with the big UH instead of a stone and UH on the top of the ring.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, I will forward this info to my cousin and they can run with it.

It was a bit before that. I graduated in 2007 and they weren’t brand new then.

That said, the pricing wasn’t that different from now to then which is surprising.
