Miskatonic University Class Ring

Back to List
$124.00 - $2,744.00

Inspired from by the gothic horror stories Herbert West–Reanimator and The Dunwich Horror by HP Lovecraft, the Badali Jewelry artist, Janelle Badali, crated the Miskatonic University Class Ring.  Miskatonic University is the fictional Ivy league school in Arkham, Massachusetts featured in Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos.  It is said that the Necronomicon is housed in the university's library.  The class year on the ring is 1928, the year The Call of Cthulhu was published.  The design for the ring was fashioned after class rings from the Yale and Brown from the 1920's.  The crest on each side of the ring features Cthulhu's tentacles wrapped around The Necronomicon.  The inside of the band under the signet is hand engraved with HP Lovecraft's initials.

The Miskatonic Class Ring is skillfully crafted in your choice of sterling silver, 14k yellow gold, or 14k white gold.  The ring is carefully hand finished and inspected for the highest quality by our staff.  The signet ring is available in US sizes 6 to 15, in whole, half, and quarter sizes.  Sizes 13 1/2 (13.5) to 15 are an additional $15.00 in sterling silver, additional $45.00 in 14k gold.  If you need a quarter size or non-US size, please use the special instructions area during check out to let us know.  See our conversion chart for UK, French, German, Japanese, and Swiss to US sizes.

The MU Class ring measures approximately 19.2 mm (3/4") top to bottom.  The band measures approximately 4.1 mm (3/16") wide and 3.5 mm (1/8") thick.  The ring weighs approximately 14.8 grams in sterling silver, approximately 18.5 grams in 14k gold.  The weight will vary with size.  The area behind the signet is partially carved out to increase comfort.  The inside of the band is stamped with our makers mark, copyright, and metal content.

The ring is available with a black antiquing finish (pictured) or a plain finish - just the metal, no treatment.

Very well crafted in Sterling Silver. Solid and, yes, impressive look. Comfortable fit. Unfortunately, it was held by German custom for a week. This could have been avoided with more detailed information on the outside of the parcel, I suppose. But, all's well that ends well. Thanks a lot!

I've had my eye on one of these for quite a while and I'm very glad I finally pulled the trigger.

My ring size is a UK W which doesn't exactly marry up to the US size, I contacted Badali and asked if they could accommodate the slight change and was relieved to hear it would not be an issue.

All told from point of order to delivery to my house in the UK it took roughly two weeks, including several days of Royal Mail faffing about with a customs charge.

The ring itself is solid with a good weight to it. The engraving is very clean and the antiquing is of a good standard with no voids or excessive build ups and feels like it won't chip or crack.

The underside has been carved out slightly and compared to other rings I have this does indeed make it very comfortable to wear. The void does trap water when I wash my hands but in reality it's a complete non-issue.

Overall I am very happy and completely satisfied with my purchase and would recommend anyone sitting on the fence to go for it, you will not be disappointed.

I was fortunate enough to spot this at Dragon Con. Both my friend and I had to get one and it's ended up being our favorite thing from the convention. I've been showing it to my friends and everyone that's familiar with HPL immediately loves it. I can't stop grinning over it.

Just received my Miskatonic University class ring today. Quick shipping! When I opened the jewelry box that held my little treasure I smiled a big smile and immediately put it on. It's beautifully crafted in sterling silver, shiny, good weight, and a nice bonus on the inside (the initials of the great Master of Horror himself). Thank you very much. I will be buying more goodies in the future!
