architecture school rings


adding onto to this topic of archi-elitism...
does anyone's school hold the tradition of giving out architecture rings at graduation? something like an engineer's ring..? my school has one but i'm wondering if this is only school-specific or not...

I've got an architecture school mug from UCLA. I had to pay for it, though.

a few in my class got overall school rings, but we were so detached from student life it seemed kind of trivial. I regret it now though.

The traditional rings at my university are hideous to say the least. So I worked up some drawings and had titanium era fabricate it for me. It turned out great and was half the cost of a traditional.
this is the ring

Pretty cool ring. I would have considered one of those.

They didn't have the inlayed silver ones, I think I would have preferred silver to white gold. I was actually working with a silversmith in London on a version that was inlayed with concrete. We got into an argument on some of the details that I wanted to ensure that the concrete was not going to fall out if it cracked. Anyhow, it became too difficult to describe through emailed sketches, 3d models, etc. I'd still like to make one if I find someone who works with concrete and jewelry.

Konzuk's work is of very nice nice quality and she does work in concrete. i don't know how 'big' she's gotten but she was published a couple of times. she may or may not be into one-offs. good luck.

Thanks for the link. Konzuk's work is great, and of much better quality than the previous jewler I was working with. kelvin birk

In Brazil we wear a Silver or Gold ring with a blue rock, usually Sapphire or Aquamarine.
