Choose Your Own Style Class Ring! Class rings began as a tradition at West Point Military Academy in 1835, when students started wearing them to show their unity and as a remembrance of the time they spent at the Academy. Then students begin to wear rings to symbolize graduation from high school or college. Class rings are also a symbol of the university itself and of membership within the alumni community, a symbol of individual expression. Nowadays, class rings are even exchanged between students in order to show their commitment to each other.
As a matter of fact, in the past, some class rings are made like signet rings, a circlet bearing the school's emblem or seal. Others have stones that students have chosen to match a birth stone or the school's colors. All class rings typically bear the name or logo of the school on the bezel surrounding the stone. The only difference from year to year was the graduating year engraved on them.
Forget the 2 months salary rule right now. That was just intelligent marketing on the part of DeBeers about 15 years ago. If you make $4,000 a month, then you are talking about spending $8,000 on a diamond engagement ring. Most people that make $4,000 a month cannot afford to spend two months of their salary on a ring. Maybe getting a ring that is worth $8,000 would be a good idea if you can get a great deal and spend around $3,000. Trust me this can be done and we will talk about that a bit in step 5.
Each ring made comes with its own finish so you could choose from shiny, matte or even an oxidized finish. All of these could be considered modern or classic in the way of style. A very important factor to consider is your engagement ring. You will be wearing your wedding ring alongside your engagement ring so you want to choose something that will compliment the other.
The price of the ring is only part of what you need to look at. The real price tag is the value. She does not need to know exactly what you spent, but the value is going to be on the appraisal so she will know that. There is nothing wrong with getting a $3,000 ring for $1,000. That is called smart shopping.
