Hey CAGs I am thinking bout getting myself a high school ring since I never got one when I graduated in 2008 and now I lately been wanting to have one since I feel it would be nice and to always remember my fun times there. I thought this might be a good Thread Topic since I want to get a ring and I'm sure CAGs have also might have or not got their school rings. :) If you have yours post a picture or talk about why you felt like you wanted to have your ring? I want mine since it would honestly be nice and would make me feel that I have another memento other than that diploma.

Never felt the need to buy one then, and haven't regretted it since. The only ring I wear is my wedding band.

I didn't get one, but I think if you had a good time in high school and want something to remember it by, I think it's acceptable to get one. I remember them being kind of expensive though.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

I was pretty well known in high school, but I hated my class. I never did a damn thing to be involved with my school. I didn't even go to my own Prom. All of that stuff seemed like an excessive waste of money to me. If I actually liked my school and the people, maybe I would have considered getting one. I didn't sooo, no thanks!

I don't have either and never wanted either. Not big on jewelry.

IMO, this is what yearbooks are for. I would consider a ring a waste of money. I could maybe understand a college ring, but not high school.

Neither. I felt it is a waste of money since who would actually wear those.

I have a high school ring that I never wore. It's cool as a keepsake I suppose, but otherwise it was a waste of money.

I agree with this. Yearbooks are much better at chronicling the main events in HS, along with the notes/signatures from your friends. A ring sits in a case in a closet for most people after they hit about 20 yrs old. Not to say that yearbooks don't either, but rings seem redundant and a waste of money.

Nope, I don't need a piece of jewelry telling people hey I went to college, or hey I went to this high school. Plus I don't wear jewelry.

Same here, but I actually got the ring for some stupid ass reason. I regret it because I never wear it at all; not even sure where it is. I have zero plans to buy a ring here at my college, even though I like it a lot better.

I never really bought anything my senior year of High School.. I didn't feel like it was necessary. The only thing I really bought was my 2010 lanyard.. but when I started college I felt kinda lame wearing that old lanyard, so I replaced it. Feels tacky wearing things referring to your high school days.

Haven't seen mine in a while. They're really impractical to wear and I'm in agreement with everyone that says yearbooks are sufficient sources of high school memorabilia.

yearbooks are nice in high school because you can look back at all those fine chicks that wouldn't give you the time of day in school before the reunion and laying on the "I got rich biatch" thing pretty heavily.

Same. Total waste of money, IMO.

Getting one while you're in school is fine. Getting one so long after you graduated seems kind of weird.

I had a ring in high school and actually wore it every day, but as soon as I graduated it suddenly seemed a lot less cool.

No. I had not interest at all then, and definitely don't regret it now. Aside from not caring about rings other than my wedding band, those high school rings are hideous IMHO.

never got one. graduated in 2002. thought about it a few times since but idk. i dont wear jewelry anymore either except my earrings. I'm 27 now and haven't seen anyone with a school ring since I was in high school. I'd say don't waste your time with it.

I got one, but not due to my own will. My parents wanted me to have one so they got it for me.

Have never worn it in the 7 years I've been out of high school.

Same here. My parents bought me a ring in high school. I think I wore it on my last day and that was all. Now it sits in their jewelry box, at least that's where I assume it is. I haven't seen it since 1993 or so. Those things are a complete waste of money.

Never saw the point of it since I didn't have the cash to throw around and a yearbook was enough of a keepsake for a minor point in my life. Seriously felt bad for those kids that felt that was going to be the best time in their lives.

I suppose if high school will be the pinnacle of your life, go ahead and get the ring.

I have a HS ring, most people I knew from HS got them too. College rings... I passed on. I know a couple of people who wear their college rings, from pretty good schools, but I roll my eyes now whenever I see them wearing the rings, especially since we're a few years out of college now.

I could understand wanting to perhaps collect school rings from places where you've graduated, but I don't see the appeal of really wearing them. Its not like school rings go well with a t-shirt and jeans, nor is anyone going to be impressed by the ring at a formal event. Most guys will probably just wear a wedding band and that'll be that.
