University Ring

A collective of students and alumni designed the school’s official ring to forever symbolize the history and tradition of Carolina. Wear your pride everywhere.

The official University of South Carolina ring is one of the university’s most prestigious traditions. A time-honored expression of Carolina pride, it is recognized by Carolina alumni worldwide.

The ring is available in men’s and women’s sizes in precious metals including 10K, 14K and 18K solid white or yellow gold in several finishes. Students can customize the side of their rings to denote the year and major or a dual major. Eligible students can purchase their rings on campus at the Russell House during ring week.

Earning the Ring

The ring is a symbol that must be earned. The right to wear the ring belong to:

  • Graduates and students who have achieved 60 credit hours or more
  • Graduate students who have completed at least 50 percent of their coursework
  • Alumni

Ordering Your Ring

Order your ring through the university’s official ring representative, Balfour. Order online or call 1-800-BALFOUR for assistance.

Students who order rings before or during ring week can receive their Carolina ring at the university’s official Ring Ceremony held on the historic Horseshoe each spring.
