History & Tradition
Ron George was the first jeweler to personally handcraft custom class rings for USNA Midshipmen back in 1982. He began a tradition of service that has continued for over 35 years. Today, in honor of this tradition, Ron and his son John continue work directly with Mids, their families and Alumni to handcraft unique class rings to be proudly worn and cherished for a lifetime.
