The rings can be custom made in traditional style and be personalized with relevant details. The custom military rings allow you to display details of your service and are a badge of honor. It was in 1835 that the original U.S Army ring was worn at West Point. Since then the tradition of wearing these custom military rings has spread throughout all branches of the Armed Forces.

How To Design Rings
Our advice to you is to get a pen and paper and write down what you want on the ring. Make a list of details and dates, units or divisions you served with over the years. List the campaigns and deployments that you served on. List the combat zones you fought in. When you have the list made, you will probably see that you have more than would fit on a small ring. The next step is to extract from your list the important details that you would like to display on your military ring. Names, dates and rank can be engraved above the selected emblem for the sides. Remember to select different emblems for both sides as the company can’t put the same emblem on the two sides.

Romans wore military class rings to battle, believing this would assure them victory. Today, engagement rings and wedding rings symbolize deep love and commitment to a partner for life. Other rings can be worn which symbolize virginity and the keeping of promises.
The class ring represents a number of things to the wearer. Normally they are acquired at graduation and mark a rite of passage, highlighting the student’s personal achievement in completing their studies. They designate the beginning of responsible adult life in a physically tangible way, and as such take on high importance to those who choose to wear them.
The ring connects the wearer to the other military students in their class and associates them with their school. For instance in the navy class rings there is a sense in which wearers are brothers, part of the same club, even years after graduation from navy academies has taken place. These rings can be a great source of pride and schools may make their rings very large and distinctive so that fellow alumni members can recognize each other easily, even from a distance.
Sometimes, a class ring may also be given to a high school sweetheart as a symbol of devotion, or rings can be traded to highlight that the couple is “going steady”. Parents may also pass their ring onto their child; in fact, sometimes class rings are handed down through many generations. The ring is worn on the third finger of the right hand. While the student is still in school, they wear the ring with the insignia facing their body. However, upon graduation the crest is turned outwards so as to face the world the graduate is about to enter into.
A ceremonial act takes place before graduation wherein people who are important to the wearer rotate the ring on the finger. Everyone must turn it in the same direction except for the final turn, which should go the opposite way. The final turn signifies the moment has arrived for the wearer to go out into the world, and is thus done by someone who is particularly special to them.
Although class rings may be expensive for the average student, they serve as a memento of the years spent at school, one which can be passed on through the family for decades. They are simultaneously a personal symbol of achievement and a communal symbol of brotherhood, and as such act as an important tradition to mark the transition into adulthood
