Barley Ring

Ours by design

The Faculty of Agriculture's official ring was launched in 2010. The design features a textured pattern of barley around the band. Each ring is handmade by local artisan, Donna Hiebert. The barley pattern represents an essential element of agriculture. Barley has been a widely planted and harvested crop in Nova Scotia since the earliest times and it was one of the first crops planted on the Agriculture Campus in 1890. 

Customize your ring

Rings are available in in 14k white and yellow gold, as well as stainless steel. Stainless steel rings have a patina finish. Choose from two different widths in 14K white or yellow gold or stainless steel. Custom engravings can be made inside the band. You can find more on our ordering information page.

Ring Days

Ring Days are held each year for graduating students. Potential graduates are encouraged to celebrate their achievements by purchasing our biggest symbol - our "Barley Ring".

If an order is placed during this scheduled time, delivery is guaranteed for Barley Party.


Barley Party

Each spring the Alumni Engagement Office hosts the Barley Party. All graduating students are invited to this event to celebrate the end of classes and the beginning of their status as an alumnus of the Faculty of Agriculture.
