Graduation rings or class rings are a time honored tradition, worn by students and alumni to commemorate their achievement of graduating as a pilot. Alumni are always glad to recognize and greet when they identify another wearing a graduation ring from the same flight school they graduated from.
A class or graduation ring is worn on the right hand ring figure. This way there is no confusion between a graduation ring and a wedding ring.
If the wearer is still in school, the insignia should face the wearer to remind his or her goal of graduation. Upon graduation, the ring becomes a recognition similar to a diploma or a degree certificate. The graduation entitles the wearer to display the insignia facing outward, facing the viewers.
Your graduation ring will also be personalized with your name engraved inside the ring, making it unique to you.
