Graduate Rings

The Institute is proud to announce that it has recently partnered with Jostens to provide our members with CIP and FCIP graduate rings. The CIP and FCIP rings are available to all members of the CIP Society to purchase and are offered in a variety of metals, including gold, silver, and lustrium, in English or French, and in two styles.

President and CEO, Peter Hohman, FCIP, says “We are delighted to offer our members CIP and FCIP rings through our partnership with Jostens. It's a very memorable token of the incredible achievement by our graduates in earning their designation and will be a tradition we look forward to carrying on for our members in the years to come.”

If you are a CIP or an FCIP and would like to purchase a ring, please call Paul Robinson of Jostens at (647) 409-7285 or email him at for further details.
