A day dedicated to wearing your class ring with pride and sharing the experiences it represents

INDIANAPOLIS (October 7, 2019) – Get your class rings polished! Herff Jones, an achievement division of Varsity Brands and the leading provider of graduation and educational products and services, is celebrating its annual National Class Ring Day on Wednesday, Oct. 9. This national holiday is aimed at celebrating both the tradition and excitement of class rings.

On that day, anyone who owns a class ring is encouraged to wear it with pride while taking a moment to reflect on their high school or collegiate experiences. It is also a time for current students to embrace their school spirit and show off their class ring style. Herff Jones began celebrating National Class Ring Day in 2014, and as the rings get more customizable, the stories get even more special.

What does your ring mean to you? Students and alumni are encouraged to share a picture or video of their class ring – and the story behind it — on Instagram or Twitter by using the hashtags #NationalClassRingDay and #HJClassRing. Participants will be entered for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card. For inspiration and giveaway details, visit
