For over 100 years Balfour has been providing students with quality products they can be proud to wear and share. Everyone is familiar with the iconic high school class ring. Your parents may have one, a lasting reminder of their high school days. As time has passed, the popularity of class rings has waned. However, in recent years there has been an upswing in interest and purchase of high school class rings. Due in part to the ever-expanding variety of desirable ring styles, but also because students seem to once again be looking for ways to show pride in their school, and want a reminder of their high school experience. Many of you will attend college, and feel you should wait to purchase a college ring. Did you know that you can trade in in your gold Balfour high school ring toward the purchase of your college ring? You may not want to part with your high school ring, and will choose to keep it to wear to reunions and as a cherished keepsake.
