Our Visit

Ring University at Myeongdong

Ring University at Hongdae

At Ring University in 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. Take home a beautiful reminder of 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 even if you are not dexterous, as the staff will kindly tell you the instruction. Although the teachers don't speak Chinese, they can communicate in simple English, and through thorough demonstrations, you won't have any trouble with the class. 

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

While I was reading the manual, the staff showed me the sample rings.

On the order form, you'll write down the shape you want, whether you want engraving, birthstones, etc. If you want to change the thickness of the ring, engrave, or add a birthstone, you can pay them an additional fee.

They'll measure your finger with this measuring equipment and cut the ring by the exact size.

Ring circling and soldering are done by the expert teachers because this process can be dangerous.

After circling the ring is finished, you put the ring in this metal bar and hammer it with a wooden hammer to fit it to your ring size. 

For the soft finish of the ring, you are going to do sandpaper work.

Finally, you polish the ring for a shiny finish.

If you added an engraving, the teacher will make your engraving for you. You can pay the extra fee on-site!

Your own unique ring has been created! 

Isn't that precious? Whether you came with your friends, siblings, lover, or family members, you will definitely leave with a special reminder of Korea. 

Rather than buying the same Korean souvenirs, 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 at an affordable price and also make a beautiful memory!
