  • Regular price $875.00

Theta Delta Chi ( ΘΔΧ) is a social fraternity that was founded in 1847 at Union College, New York, United States. While nicknames differ from institution to institution, the most common nicknames for the fraternity are TDX, Thete, Theta Delt, Thumpers, TDC, and less commonly referred to as, Teeds.

 Converted from a Theta Delta Chi Fraternity pin, this cool ring has a 14 karat gold shank and setting. The ring top is shaped like a shield, decorated in black, gold and blue enamel. The shield is rimmed in seed pearls, and the stars on the face are accented with tiny diamonds. While it may appear more feminine to the modern eye, it was common for Victorian men to wear jewelry embellished with gems and pearls. Whether you're a Collegiate Dandy, or just love the style of this ring, it's a wonderful keepsake from the past, commemorating a time honored tradition that carries into many lives today.
