One of the rites of passage when I was younger was receiving your class ring. I’ve come to learn that the tradition of how and when kids receive their ring varies widely by state to state (and likely even school to school). The constant, though, is that it was still kind of a big deal.
As a lot of school-related traditions have changed or faded over the years but class rings haven’t been one of them. I think part of it is because you can make it a really personal thing – chose the stone, the style, the activities you want highlighted, everything. I received mine as an 8th grade graduation present, which was awesome: I had 4 years of school to wear it.
