The tradition of class rings originated with the class of 1835 at the United States Military Academy at West Point. From there, the practice of a dated ring signifying ones alma mater became a popular fashion, worn as a symbol of pride and accomplishment. This piece has been converted to a ring from a school pin. The detailed face shows a cityscape in the background with a torch and open book bearing the initials S B S. Riveted to a cobalt blue spinel stone with a closed back, it has a wonderful vintage graphic feel, perfect for bookworms everywhere!
