My daughter was looking for a ring that she could use as a "class ring". She chose this ring, because it was something that she would never tire of wearing and could still get her year engraved on the inside. Class rings are so expensive and most are not even real gold or have real gemstones unless you pay a outrageous amount of money on it. And even then, most don't continue to wear them past high school. This was a great selection because it had everything! It is a beautiful ring!
