10 Steps to Craft Your High School Ring
For nearly a century, Balfour has been a proven leader in class ring design. Our experts work with students to create rings featuring designs important to your high school experience. For almost 100 years, Balfour has customized rings using the highest-quality materials.
Our cutting-edge toolmaking and technology allows for the intricate and precise detail to eventually be carved into your class ring.
To ensure you get exactly the look you want, we first make a wax pattern of the ring and adjust it to your ring size to make sure it is a perfect fit!
Molding Your Ideas
Our multiprocess cast making uses a time-honored technique that has been perfected over a thousand years. First, a plaster is poured over the wax, and then the wax is melted to make a ring mold. The quality material you selected (gold, silver or Celestrium) is poured into the mold and hardened. Your ring is starting to become a reality!
Our jewelry craftsmen then clean, smooth edges and shape your ring to make sure your special details are perfect and clearly stand out.
Special Stone Setting
Our experts set your stone into your ring. Balfour has a special Custionseal process that secures your stone fit for added protection.
Depending on the finish you selected, we can add additional background color using our special coating so your ring details really “POP”!
To make your class ring truly shine, we have a special highlighting step that pulls out more of the individual details in your ring.
If you want to engrave your name, a date or a message on the inside of your class ring, we can do it. Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to clearly engrave and further personalize your ring.
Upon passing the scrupulous inspection of Balfour’s Quality Control team, your high school ring is ready to be shown off! You can take as much pride in your ring as you do in your high school achievements.
