Originally created by three friends at the University of Oxford who were looking for sustainable and long-lasting alternatives to the everyday products & gifts that were being used to celebrate and cherish their undergraduate memories.
Since those earliest days, Annotated has stood for the idea that, by making things well, we could imbue our products with a sense of soul. You can feel it the moment you touch one of our signet rings.
Over the years, the Annotated graduation ring has become our definition of one-of-a-kind and bespoke: completely made-to-order in collaboration with its owner and crafted by hand from precious metals. Whether a graduand is someone who typically is interested in fine jewellery or not, he or she ought to be able to wear something both elegant and of a quality that reflects their deep passion for education and exploring ideas.
The project is about reflecting this heart felt commitment to education and the questioning life, while keeping true to your roots and embracing everything good.
It is inspired by our family and our friends; by the kind of people who say what they mean, do what they feel and stand on their own.
