Class of 2024 Ring Ordering
Rings are created by Jostens, the same company that makes rings for the Super Bowl. After ordering, cadets will not receive their rings until the spring during Ring Dance. Cadets are given many options for how to design their class rings. They may choose between 18K, 14K or 10K white gold. They can also choose between genuine or synthetic stones.
Every class ring features the official crest for that class. Designed by each class, one side of the ring bears the Academy crest, while the other side bears the class crest, which always includes elements from the Class of 1959’s crest: the class number, the class year, the Polaris star and the eagle.
The Class of 2024 crest differs from any other class crest because it is the only one to make direct reference to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Class of 2024 crest features a single virus molecule located on the hilt of the saber. This represents how the first year for the Class of 2024 was unlike any other. This shared experience has made the Class of 2024 a more resilient class.
