If you're trying to figure out how to wear your high school ring that you spent a lot of money on before graduating, then you're not alone. A lot of people purchase these rings and then have no idea how to wear them, when to wear them and what the real significance of them is in the first place. However, you've already spent a lot of money on something that you thought looked cool your senior year of high school and would be something you would cherish for a long time, so it might be a good idea to get some use out of it.
Check out a few of the suggestions below on how to wear your high school ring so that it doesn't become just an expensive paper weight.
If you've just graduated from high school and haven't gone off to college yet, wear this high school class ring with pride every single day. You've just graduated from high school after 12 grueling years of mandatory school in America and now you can at least get a menial job in the real world. And that means something! So show it off by wearing this high school ring to prove you graduated, at least until you get to college. Because if you wear your high school ring while you are at college, people will most likely laugh at you for living in the past.
If you go back to high school reunions regularly (like every year) then you should definitely wear your high school class ring, as it will celebrate your time in high school and really solidify your place in the high school itself. If you go to high school-oriented events on a regular basis, like football and baseball games, or you have kids who go to that high school, then sporting this ring on your finger to show that you were a product of that high school makes sense and is an appropriate thing. You will probably be in good company, as a number of other parents who are part of the high school's legacy will probably be there, wearing the high school rings they got when they graduated.
If you won a ton of awards while you were attending high school through the sports program or academic program, then wearing your high school ring is probably appropriate as well, as it commemorates an important time in your life. This will also be a conversation piece when you are talking to people who don't know you, as you can tell them about the team you were on or about the time you used to play when you were younger: the glory years, if you will. It will also give you something to look back on when you are wearing it on your finger, taking you back to that incredible time when you were young and very talented in a particular sport or activity. Think of it as wearing a bit of nostalgia on your finger.
