Official 49er Ring

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte Official 49er Ring is an emblem of academic achievement and serves as a tangible reminder of a student’s memories at UNC Charlotte. Created exclusively for Niner Nation by Balfour, its well-known symbols instantly designate the wearer as a proud 49er.

Designed for and by students and Alumniners, the Official Ring captures the very essence of life on and around the Niner Nation. Each symbol that adorns this ring was carefully chosen to capture the pride and passion of UNC Charlotte.

Wear it with pride! As a constant reminder of your achievements and the tradition of our alma mater, we are proud to offer you the Official Ring of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Receiving your Official 49er Ring

Students who purchase their ring during the official fall or spring Ring Promotion Week will receive an invitation to the Official 49er Ring Ceremony.

At the ceremony, a senior university administrator individually presents every ring recipient his or her ring. Recipients who do not attend a ring ceremony, can pick up their ring at the Barnes & Noble bookstore after the final ring ceremony. Any rings not picked up by the last class day of the semester or 30 days post-ring ceremony event for alumni, will be shipped to the recipient.

Alumni who order a ring during the official Ring Promotion Week and wish to participate in the Official 49er Ring Ceremony should RSVP for the event as early as possible. You must be registered to participate in the ceremony.
