Folks, if you're on the fence about getting a Class Ring from Wal-Mart, let me be the person who tells you this; It's worth EVERY penny, and it's a piece I'm proud to wear.
I graduated in 1995 from High School, and got a Class Ring from one of the big-name ring manufacturers in 10kt Gold. I still have this ring, but it's a huge chunk of Gold (picture a Super-Bowl sized ring here), and it makes me nervous to wear it, as I'm afraid that I'll end up losing it. I actually DID lose it for about 6 months, but thankfully found it at the bottom of my couch. Now, that was about 6 years ago, and since then, I haven't touched it. Ever since then, I had thought of getting another one but never committed on one until about a month ago, when I was passing by the Jewelry counter at the Wal-Mart I work at. After examining the sample rings, I decided to order the Oval Classic Personalized in the Gold Valadium, which is a very high-quality gold-toned Surgical Steel that matches the lustre of gold. A little less than a Month later, I recieved my ring. :)
Folks, comparing this ring to my "Chunk-of-Gold" Class Ring, it's VERY difficult to tell which is the Gold and which isn't. :) The finish and lustre of the Golden Valadium is top-notch, and is as heavy as the 10kt Gold Ring I own. The stone set in the crest (I selected the Ruby) is actually more eye-catching than my original, and compliments the overall setting. The side panels are extremely detailed, intricate in every detail to my selected designs. The side panels even have my schools colors placed in a small set of panels under the main side panels, which is something none of the big-name ring manufacturers offer! :) Bottom-line? This is the ring to wear if you want to show off your school pride and not have to worry about losing, because it's inexpensive enough to replace if something does happen to it. I love this ring so much, in fact, that I'm thinking of getting another one just because!
