Official Tennessee Tech University Ring & Pendant
Show your TTU Pride by wearing the official Tennessee Tech ring or pendant! Each ring or pendant symbolically captures the uniqueness of Tennessee Tech University.
Honoring one of the most familiar Tennessee Tech traditions, the elegant ring and pendant depict the Golden Eagle in flight. The majestic bird, wings outstretched, has represented TTU as the campus’ official mascot since 1925. Depicting pride, honor, strength, spirit and intelligence, the Golden Eagle is a fitting symbol of TTU.
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Tennessee Tech in 2015, we have also designed a limited edition Centennial Ring. This beautiful ring, will be available through 2016.
TTU Signet Ring and Pendant
A customized signet ring with Tennessee Tech's symbol, custom-crafted in your choice of 10-kt or 14-kt yellow or white gold or silver and is available in both ladies' and men's sizes.
The inside of the ring may be personalized by engraving the recipient’s name, initials or personal sentiment — up to 18 alpha-numeric characters or Greek letters. A special presentation box is included.
Students wear the ring with the school name facing them. Upon the granting of degrees at Commencement, graduates turn the ring around, with the name facing outward. This symbolizes that the graduate is now ready to face the world. (shown above)
The beautiful pendant features the official Tennessee Tech symbol surrounded by amethysts and either diamonds or cubic zirconia in your choice of 10-kt or 14-kt yellow or white gold. (shown above)
