Same here. I got my MBA in 2008 and really wanted a class ring until I saw the price. Then I realized that I have champagne taste on a cool-aid budget. Perhaps one day I'll decide to buy one, for now the prices are way to steepI have my high school ring, but didn't want to spend the funds on a college ring. I considered it again when I recently finished a graduate program and had sticker shock at the current prices.

If you want, find a good custom goldsmith in your area. Someone who makes jewelry from scratch, sort of thing. I suspect he can resize it or suggest some other sort of re-working that will preserve the crest and allow the ring to resume daily wear.However there is no way it will fit me now 50 years later. And I don’t even know if Balfour the manufacturer can resize it.
Very cool. My son has my father's (RIP) CCNY ring. I believe he graduated in the class of 1956. My son hasn't worn it but he keeps it in a safe place. I never got a ring from my college. Interestingly, my son is getting a ring from his High School. He goes to a private college prep high school. I went to public school all the way through.Does anyone still wear/possess their college ring?
Mine is from CCNY, class of 1971, I've managed to hang to it and am proud of it. I mostly only wear it on special occasions,
It should run anywhere from $45-$90, depending on the amount of gold required to to resize it.I still have my class ring, Indiana University 1969. However there is no way it will fit me now 50 years later. And I don’t even know if Balfour the manufacturer can resize it.
Same here. I had a chance to purchase a HS ring and a college ring but passed on both. I did purchase a 1981 Sayville, NY High School beer mug, though I don't have it any longer. It's long gone along with my youth and most of my hair .I had the chance to buy a class ring way back in the day but I passed. Don’t regret it.
