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.
Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
As the time goes on, students have various ideas about class ring. Many of them like to personalize their class ring with their own ideas. Students who purchase class rings often do so as a remembrance of their time in school. These rings are cherished by their owners and are often passed down as heirlooms.
