Every Class Ring Mod™ you see is specific to the one who requested it.

Do you offer a discount and free dividers?

Yes. Every package we offer is priced up to 20% off normal retail value for military students, families and alumni. A FREE pair of Divider Mods™, up to a $250 value, is included with every package purchase of $200 or more.

Can I upgrade with Class Ring Mods™ if I already have a ring?

Please Note:
Your class ring's specifications do not need to match how we ask you to order it from the ring company. The options we ask for aid us in the upgrading process which results in a faster turn-around time and a much more cost effective upgrade for you. They are not however a requirement for upgrading your ring.

Ring Company

Who is the ring company and what is the contract?

The ring company is the winner of a special contract to be the exclusive producer of all class ring settings for a particular class year. The ring company producing the setting may change from year to year.

What is included and excluded in the ring company contract?

Contract Includes: A class ring setting.

Contract Excludes: Everything else; including all diamonds, gemstones, dividers, upgrades and future services and repairs.

This is where we come in. The ring company specializes in producing settings, while we specialize in high quality diamonds, gemstones, upgrades, lifetime service and care of your class ring.

How should I order my ring from the ring company?

If you plan on upgrading your ring, you should order it with these options:

  • Open back.
  • A single black onyx center stone.
  • No cluster/pavé.
  • Plain gold star dividers.
  • A satin finish and no antiquing.

Ordering your ring with these options will make it easier to add your Class Ring Mods™. We can also add antiquing at no charge after your upgrade.

Can I purchase the class ring setting from you?

No. Under contract only one company (ie: the ring company) is allowed to produce the class ring settings for a particular year. Once you have your ring setting, we provide Class Ring Mods™, packages, diamonds, gemstones and all other class ring related services and care.

I lost my ring. Can I have it replaced?

Yes. If anything happens to your class ring (loss, damage, theft, extensive wear) the ring company is able to provide you with a replacement class ring setting if they are still in business. They do this once for free if it's within three years from the date you first received your ring. Their replacement does not include genuine gemstones and ornate objects. Once you receive your new ring setting we can add Class Ring Mods™ to match your previously lost ring's style or you can upgrade to a new style.
