History & Tradition

Celebrating 46 years of class ring
craftsmanship and innovation.

1973

Ron George, a 3rd generation goldsmith, customizes his first USNA class rings. Little did he know that he had just founded what would become a 46 year old family tradition.

1982

While working 1-on-1 with a midshipman, Ron designs and then crafts what would later be known as the first ever Class Ring Mod upgrade.

Early 80s

Ron became the first craftsman to set larger (.05ct and .06ct) dividers into a USNA class ring.

Late 80s

Ron pushed innovation further by crafting perfectly tailored bezels that allow for larger stones to be tightly set around the center.

1991

In 1991, Ron opened Ron George Jewelers, the longest operating jewelry store in Annapolis, MD to professionally serve mids with Class Ring Mod upgrades on a yearly basis.

2005

Ron's son John joins the family trade to become a 4th generation custom goldsmith and jewelry designer. Working along side his father, John inherits the passion for handcrafting Class Ring Mods.

2018

John George invents an all new Base Mod that sets gemstones seamlessly flush together, our Eternal MX.

Present

In honor of the family tradition Ron first founded, he and his son John continue to work directly with mids and alumni on a daily basis. Together they personally design and handcraft unique class ring packages to be proudly worn and cherished for a lifetime.
