Class Rings by Jostens

You can tell a Duke graduate by their handshake, when they’re wearing an exclusive Duke University class ring. As you begin your career and move on in the world, your ring reflects a source of pride in your education and your school.

Duke University rings come in three styles. All are crafted in the finest quality 10, 14, or 18 karat gold and feature closed-back construction.

The Traditional Ring
Features a Duke Blue Spinel stone in your choice of faceted or smooth top. All Duke traditional rings feature the Chapel and your graduation year on one side, and your degree and a Gothic “D” or the Duke seal on the other.

The Signet Ring
Suggest collegiate influence and sophistication. Crafted in solid gold, it comes with the choice of plain sides or graduation year and degree side. The top of the ring is engraved with the Gothic “D” or the Duke seal.

The Dinner Ring
A classic style. The Gothic “D” or Duke seal is on one side of the Dinner ring, with the Chapel on the other. Your graduation year and degree can be engraved inside the ring. Greek letters or other encrusting is available on top of the Duke Blue Spinel stone.

Rings are on display at the University Store on the upper level of the Bryan Center. Stop by or call for more information.

Respect for Workers’ Rights
Duke has been a leader for over two decades in efforts to ensure good working conditions and wages for the workers who make university apparel. Duke has the first university to adopt a mandatory labor code with an independent monitoring system for the companies who make our products. Duke requires these companies to publicly disclose every factory around the world where they manufacture Duke goods, and works through multiple assessment organizations to monitor labor practices at these facilities. Duke has served for many years on the Board of the Worker Rights Consortium, a leading independent monitoring group, and helped launch the first oversees factory making apparel for the U.S. collegiate market that pays its workers a genuine living wage. Duke will continue to lead efforts to achieve progress on workers’ rights, and we hope this will make you especially proud to wear Duke’s name and trademarks.
