It’s still crazy for me to think that I’ve got a child in college (college?!) and another following closely behind in high school (not to mention the next 3 that will be moving up the ranks soon enough). It feels like I just went through the whole senior year with my oldest, and yet I know that my second daughter will be filling out college applications and sending graduation announcements before I know it.
Watching my kids experience high school has been a very nostalgic experience for me. It doesn’t feel like that long ago that I was in their shoes. I remember school dances, chats around the lockers, experiencing freedom for the first time as my friends and I all got our driver’s licenses. And I remember wanting a class ring SO badly. Just this week, I was perusing Jostens class rings. The variety of class ring styles on Jostens.com, and the ability to customize designs to each student’s taste, blew me away and actually got me thinking about an excuse to order a class ring for myself. Jostens has a huge selection of the most stylish, unique and up-to-date designs in high school rings. I love how easily customizable they are – I played around with Stackable (Style 686) from Jostens, which has 3 separate, stackable bands. If I were making this for my high school-aged daughter, I would design one band with a deep blue stone and the other with a golden stone to represent their school colors, blue and gold. And since she is so involved in her barbershop quartet through the school music department, I would definitely add an engraving of her quartet’s name, Afterglow, to the solid band.
Graduating high school is a great accomplishment, and it’s worth commemorating their accomplishments, experiences, and memories with something lasting like a class ring. Did you get a class ring when you graduated high school? Which of the class rings by Jostens do you like most? Are you a traditionalist or do you like the fresh, new designs best?
