I did not get a class ring, but their was a lot of pressure to do so from the people at Jostens, who blanketed are school with marketing material. I just didn’t see the need for one that would justify the expense. Perhaps if Jostens had gone the Zales route and offered a sweet Trans Am as a possible prize for getting a ring, that would have changed things dramatically. I had not interest in non-Lord of the Rings related rings when I was in high school, but I was very interested in the Bandit in Smokey and the Bandit.
Note: I also would be happy to be Snowman from Smokey and the Bandit.
