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.
