Her tweet read:

“In Sweden you can get a special ring when you obtain a PhD (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctoral_ring)! Due to covid I’m not sure if I will ever have a graduation ceremony, but I’m very happy that I got my doctoral ring now.”

In Sweden, according to Wikpedia, a doctoral ring may be bestowed on a person upon the completion of one’s PhD programme in the country.

It usually comes with a doctoral hat which goes with the regalia. While the hat has no use outside academic events, the ring is worn daily on the ring finger of the left hand.

Reacting to her feat and the honour of the ring that came with it @seawells68 said:

“Excellent. Now I want one. In America, you can’t use your Dr. title unless you’re a medical Dr. or an academic professor in a professional/academic setting.”

@The_Ada-Rhodes reacted:

“That’s really cool!
