Getting a class ring is a rite of passage. Ninth and tenth graders can’t wait until they are juniors so they can get their class ring. For many years, homeschoolers weren’t able to order class rings. Now that has changed and there are companies that make homeschool class rings.
When I was in high school, I bought my own class ring. Since I worked all the way through high school, it was possible for me to do that. I still couldn’t afford the ring I really wanted, though. I love gold jewelry better than silver. Even way back then, lol, gold rings were expensive. The company my school used offered a ring for someone like me. I remember it was called a saddleback. The gold was over a base of something else. Not silver, I just can’t remember what it was. Here’s a pic:
Why, yes, it does say 1981. lol Oh, the design in the middle is batons with the word “twirling” across the middle. I was a majorette. The baton twirling kind, not the kind that marches in front of the band with the really big baton. This ring is practically an antique! lol
My oldest son didn’t want a class ring. Well, he would have gotten one if I had paid for the whole thing. I said he had to pay for half himself. So he didn’t want one.
My oldest daughter wanted one and was willing to pay for half. She ordered her’s from Walmart. We both were happy with it, it’s a very nice looking ring.
My next two students are talking about getting class rings now, so we’ve been looking around.
Of course, our first stop was Walmart. You can order Walmart’s class rings online now. So much easier.

You can also go with Jostens. They have been providing schools with class rings for years. Their rings are gorgeous, just really expensive.
