Capture the essence of Purdue University with your very own class ring.

Simple yet striking, the signet ring features a shield and griffin, symbolizing strength. The shield is separated into three parts representing Purdue’s mission: education, research, and service.

The shanks of the ring feature imagery recognizable to any Boilermaker. The left side depicts the spire of University Hall, the oldest building on campus. The right side of the ring proudly portrays the tower of Purdue Memorial Union.

The traditional ring features a black onyx stone with the option of an engraved Motion P. The right shank features the famous griffin and a ribbon with 27 engraving options along with the recipient’s graduation year. The left side reveals the Boilermaker Special in front of the Bell Tower and beside the Big Bass Drum.

The official Purdue class ring is reserved exclusively for juniors and seniors in good standing. All rings are available in yellow or white gold, as well as a stainless steel version known as Celestrium.
