McMaster Class Rings FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions About McMaster School Rings
Few symbols of hard work, dedication and achievement are more enduring than a school ring. While it should capture the tradition and pride of McMaster University it should also be a reflection of your individual accomplishments and distinct personality.
How much does a class ring cost?
A $60 deposit is all that will be required and your custom designed ring will be shipped directly to your home.
When will my ring arrive?
Your ring is sent directly from Jostens and will arrive in 6 to 8 weeks.
What is the difference between 10K and 14K Gold?
In jewelry making gold is combined with other metals (aka alloys) to produce a more durable metal.
10K gold has a higher alloy content and is lighter in colour than 14K. 10K gold is generally chosen because it is very hard and resists dings and dents.
14K has a more yellow color as it is a higher purity of gold. It does ding and dent a little more often than 10K but polishes more easily because of its softer surface.
What is Lustrium?
Lustrium is a mixture of nickel and chromium. Its benefit is that it does not tarnish, while holding the luster and brilliance of more expensive metals. Lustrium is a much firmer metal than silver with a very high resistance to scratching and dents.
What is Solaris Elite?
Solaris Elite is a metal allowy that contains 25% gold content (6 parts out of 24k gold). This radiant yellow 6K metal alloy combines durability and affordability.
