Where Did the Class Ring Come From?

History of Class Rings

The class ring has a history that dates back to the year 1835. The ring was made especially for cadets graduating from the West Point U.S Academy to honor the graduates for their hard work.

In the early 1900's class rings became increasingly popular for people throughout the country. The class rings of yesteryear were made pretty basic with a simple symbol of the school attached to the center of the ring. Eventually, as they grew in popularity, people started adding stones to the rings, which is what remains popular today.
