    Do you have a high school/college class ring or ring (s)?

    This thread was inspired by OlympicNut's who were you in high school thread.

    Do have a high school ring or a college ring? If not, what made you decide not to purchase one?

    I have both. Looking back at my high school ring now, I really don't like the appearance at all. At the time, I was limited on the design and look to my taste. It's sterling silver with my birthstone in the middle which is sapphire blue.

    Herff Jones has come along way in designing school class rings to the customer's style.
    I like my college ring so much better. It's gold and it has a diamond in the middle with the college name on the side and year.

    I purchased these rings as a momento and a keepsake.

    I have my high school ring, but never got a college one. I only have an AA so I never went to a "real" college.

    High school, but not college. I didn't have that kind of connection with my university, so it wasn't important to me.

    I have a High School ring....sterling silver with a red stone. Although it was a unity thing to do our junior year.....Jostens was where my parents bought it(i.e. got ripped off). I don't regret getting it because I do still wear it from time to time but I changed schools for my senior year and didn't get one from that school or from college!!

    Nope neither. I didn't even get a yearbook my senior year. Went to my 5 year reunion and won't go to another. Wow, I sound like a grump.

    I had a HS ring. I never wore it. Now I don't know where it is.

    I did have a senior year book.

    But just like Aashee I went to my 5 year reunion and never went to another one after that.

    Ditto.

    But I don't know where my HS ring is. That's going to bother me now!

    I still have my high school ring. Where I went they just told you what to get, you didn't get a choice since it was a tradition to get that particular style/design. Since you get your ring junior year there was a big controversy from the current senior class if we deserved the traditional ring since our school was going co-ed next year and we would be part of a different school ... a lot of girl on girl happened because of that issue.

    I don't have either. At the time, it didn't seem important to me. Now, at 47, it STILL doesn't! I don't think I'd wear it now even if I did have it.

    Re: Do you have a high school/college class ring or ring (s)?

    I have a HS ring, it's gold with a red stone. My HS colors were green and gold, but I didn't have that much of a connection to my HS, so I ended up getting the closest color to my college Maroon and Gold. I never bothered with a college ring, not sure they were ever actually offered.

    Now I'm holding out for a national championship ring or a world championship ring. My two coworkers each got one in the past couple years, so I'm due.

    Where is Aashee when you need him?

    I only have my High School, not my college. I loved it back in the day. Viking head in the middle, garnet colored stone, swoopy style. In retrospect, it looks a lot like a 59 Chevy. A BelAir, not an Impala.

    I have one from HS. My parents got it for me so I wouldn't miss out on the "experience" of having a class ring. I thought it was a waste of money and I still do.

    I didn't get one from college. I think I paid enough for my education, I didn't want to hand over any more money than I had to to prove I went there. My BA cost enough!

    I don't have any class rings. Just wasn't ever important to me to spend that kind of money on something that would only wind up sitting in a drawer somewhere anyway. I do have custody of my father's ring though from when I got all his stuff after he passed. I don't remember if it's HS or college. I think it's college though, because it would mean a little more to me if it were HS since we graduated from the same HS. Haven't looked at that stuff in a while.

    I don't have either. Hated high school and really didn't like the college I went to so I just never bothered.
