I was issued mine at graduation. I believe I lost it about a week later. 
I guess I should clarify I never got one. I have a different educational background than most. Lol

I never got a ring.  Til this thread I had no idea there were engineer rings given out.  And so far as I can tell the only thing that makes a person a "real" engineer is "PASS" from NCEES (and a valid state license).

The ring does not symbolize one's competence. The Order of the Engineer was initiated in the United States to foster a spirit of pride and responsibility in the engineering profession, to bridge the gap between training and experience, and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer.

In addition, I've encountered other PE's in the field some of whom didn't know their @ss from a hole in the ground.

But that is reflective of "real"ity... no?

The stainless steel pinky ring.   Lost mine years ago.   Completely forgot about it until now.   We had to take an ethics oath.

I thought the engineer ring was a Canadian thing.

IMO the ring band is too thick for my dainty hands so I wore my ring as a necklace for a while. It's still hanging out with my other jewelry.
