The University of Texas at Austin Official Ring serves as a tangible reminder of a student’s achievement and memories at UT. Created exclusively for the Texas Exes by Balfour, this well-known ring instantly designates the wearer as a proud Texas Ex.
Designed for and by UT students, the Official Ring captures the very essence of life on and around the Forty Acres. Each symbol that adorns this ring was carefully chosen to capture the pride and passion of UT students. The Tower, "Smokey the Cannon," and, of course, the Longhorn, are symbols representing the spirit of UT culture.
While the campus will surely grow, develop, and change, the icons, the statues, the traditions and the Official Ring will not. The Official Ring will serve as an honorable symbol for all past and future graduates. It surpasses time and forms a common bond between Texas Exes and the institution that played a key role in forming their future.
In 1927, UT Seniors first bought The University of Texas rings. A technician in the Department of Zoology, Mrs. Darrell Jackson, designed the original ring. It was crafted in ten-karat gold and set with a garnet stone. One shank held a Longhorn with a lariat looped through the horns, the number "27," a lone star, and a wreath of Texas Cacti. The second shank bore the wearer’s degree, the crest, a scroll and a wreath of bluebonnets, which mimicked the wreath of Cacti on the other side. Sometime later the rings were made available in a variety of styles.
Following in the footsteps of Mrs. Jackson, in 2003, a group of University of Texas students set out to revive the original ring design and create an Official Ring that would immediately identify a Texas Ex and serve as a constant reminder of his or her experiences as a Longhorn. The result is striking.
