Ring University at Myeongdong

Ring University at Hongdae

From Ring University at Myeongdong and Hongdae, you can make your one and only special ring with 99.9% pure silver. If you visit as a couple, you can make a ring that keeps your love more intimate.

It can be a lovely souvenirs from Korea.

If you visit by yourself, you can make a meaningful ring for yourself, and if you visit with your friend, you can make a ring that represents your friendship.

You do not need to worry a bit even though you are not dexterous, as the staff will kindly tell you the instruction. Although the staffs don't speak Chinese, they can communicate in simple English, and by the way of them telling you instructions, you can surely get the gist.

The ring making steps are also translated in Chinese. So, you don't need to worry about the miscommunication.

While I was reading the manual, the staff showed me the sample rings. As there are so many sample rings, so take it easy. Once you put on a ring, you may wear it for a long time, so you'd better choose it carefully. Staff also knows this fact and they waited for us calmly.

On the order form, you'll write down the shape you want, whether you want engraving, birthstone, and etc. Then, I measured the size of my finger.

If you want to change the size of the ring, engrave, or add a birthstone, you can pay them as an additional fee.

They'll measure your finger with this measuring stuff. And they cut the ring by the exact size.

Ring circling and soldering are done by the staff. As this process include some fire works, it may be dangerous. Other than this process, you have to make it by yourself.

After circling the ring is finished, you have to do the size fitting. Put the ring in this metal bar and hammer it with a wooden hammer. 

For the soft finish of the ring, you are going to do sandpaper work. Grind the top and  bottom of the ring into a sandpaper. 

Finally, you have to do the polishing work. For twinkling rings, it needs a shine! This process is called 'Handpiece work'.

If you ordered engraving, and additional accessory, the staff will help this procedure out.

For the additional fee, you have to pay them on-site.

Voila! You made the one and only ring in the world!

Ain't that precious? It would remind you of the memories with your friend, partner, or your family!

Rather than buying the same Korean souvenirs with others, why not give yourself a present and make a special ring? 

Plus, you can also order drinks at Ring University! Have a cup of tea and make a beautiful memory!
