For centuries, ceremonial chains of office have honored the highest officials of educational institutions. A chain of office is worn as part of the pomp and ceremony at official public celebrations of the college or university, such as the inauguration of a new president and at commencement events. Chains of Office are custom crafted to fully represent your educational institution and its unique history. They are die struck from solid brass or solid nickel and typically with an antique finish. The main medal is commonly a 3” size but can be larger or smaller. Engraved or die struck components can be added to the chain to include names and dates of past presidents, former institution names or seals, etc.
