Falling into a large body of water (lake, river, ocean) is the most common fate of Aggie Rings that are reported lost.
Rings lost in snow are also common, according to The Association's Aggie Ring Program.
So, if your travel plans include skiing, fishing, tubing or swimming, leave your Aggie Ring stored in a hotel safe or other secure location (not on your car's console, where it might tempt a thief).
Around 60 Aggie Rings are reported lost each month.
If you lose yours:
The Association frequently can help reunite Rings and owners quickly. We maintain the former student database and also have records from decades of Ring orders.
Most Rings lost in water stay lost, unfortunately. Though sometimes, divers or metal detectors strike gold!
Read about these and other happy endings at tx.ag/LostRingStories.
The Association encourages Aggie Ring owners to insure against loss. Some homeowners' or renters' policies may cover the cost of replacement, and The Association can provide proof of purchase and replacement value for most Rings from the 1960s onwards. If yours is stolen, be sure your police report includes the name that is engraved on it.
Call or email The Association's Aggie Ring Program with any questions: (979) 845-1050 and AggieRing@AggieNetwork.com.
The Association has operated the Aggie Ring Program since 1969, ensuring that the proper academic qualifications are met for ordering and that the design and appearance are protected. Lend your support at tx.ag/Give.
